DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Sift dry ingredients into mixing bowl.
  • Measure shortening and cut into flour mixture with pastry blender, two knives or blending fork, until mixture looks like "meal."
  • Stir in almost all the milk.
  • If dough does not seem pliable, add the remaining milk using just enough to make a soft, puffy dough easy to roll out.
  • Knead quickly on a lightly floured board (too much handling makes tough biscuits).
  • Roll out 1/4-inch thick for thin crusty biscuits and 1/2-inch thick for thick biscuits.
  • Place on ungreased cookie sheet; close together for biscuits with soft sides, an inch apart for biscuits with crusty sides.
  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
