DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together flour, sugar and salt. Add baking powder and then cut in shortening with pastry blender until thoroughly incorporated.
  • Add milk and mix only until a soft dough forms. Dough may be slightly sticky but that is normal.
  • Generously flour counter or board and transfer dough on top dusting with a small amount of flour if dough is sticky. Pat dough out with hands till about 1 inch thick and cut with biscuit cutter or large glass dipped in flour. Place on baking sheet about 1 1/2 inch apart. Bake 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Note: Do not roll out with rolling pin as that will make for harder biscuits.
