  • For the biscuits:.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a large bowl.
  • Cut in the shortening with two knives or a pastry blender until it forms coarse, uneven crumbs.
  • Add the milk.
  • Mix well, but with a light touch.
  • On a flour-dusted surface,roll the dough into a large rectangle.(approx 11x9).
  • Spread with butter.
  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle it over the dough.
  • Roll as you would a jelly roll and slice into 12 biscuits.
  • Place a single biscuit in each muffin cup.
  • Bake until golden, about twenty minutes.
  • Cool a couple of minutes,then invert cautiously onto a plate,taking care that the sticky topping doesnt burn you.
