Baking Powder Biscuits

Recipe by MarieRynr
READY IN: 35mins




  • Sift together flour and baking powder.
  • Stir in salt and sugar.
  • Cut in the Crisco until the mixture resembles crumbs.
  • Stir together eggs and milk.
  • Make a well in the dry mixture and stir in the milk mixture with a fork.
  • Stir just to moisten, then turn out onto a lightly floured board.
  • Knead about 15 times, then pat lightly into a circle, about 1/2-inch thick.
  • (The secret to light and fluffy biscuits is to handle the dough as little as possible) With a sharp round cutter, cut out rounds, without twisting the cutter.
  • Just give it a sharp tap, then lift straight up (twisting the cutter causes the biscuits to slope over when they are baking) place on a baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Serve warm.
