Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and mix well.
Cut the butter and shortening into small pieces and add to the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add the egg and buttermilk and mix into the flour mixture until its mixed well.
Place dough on a floured surface and knead gently until the dough is a smooth ball.
