Recipe by Holly Short
These light, tasty biscuits are very quick when made in the food processor, but you can also make them without it. I adapted this recipe from one I found on the back of a baking powder can.

I've never been able to make a biscuit that was edible so I was eager to try this one with the food processor. My baking powder was a little past the expiration date but they turned out pretty good. I'll buy new powder and try them again but the taste was excellent and got pretty tall.
- 2 cups flour
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄3 cup shortening (I use butter )
- 3⁄4 cup milk
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 475 degrees.
- Put the flour, baking powder and salt in the food processor. Pulse several times to mix.
- If your shortening is hard cut it up before dropping on the food processor. Pulse until shortening is in bits about the size of small peas.
- Add milk and pulse until dough comes together.
- Dump on to a floured board and knead for a minute or two.
- Roll to 1/2 inch thick and cut dough with a floured biscuit cutter.
- Brush the biscuits with melted butter before baking on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes.
