- 2 cups flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 2/3 cup milk
- Sift flour, baking powder and salt. Add shortening and work into the flour
until it feels like coarse cornmeal. (If you like real flaky biscuits, increase
the amount of shortening.)
- Add milk and mix just enough to keep the dough together.
- Place dough on
a floured bread board and knead for a few moments. Use a rolling pin to roll
dough out to a half-inch thickness. Roll lightly. Cut with a biscuit cutter.
Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 450 degrees
These are delicious when served steaming hot with a combination of 1/3
melted butter, 1/3 honey and 1/3 molasses, all of which has been heated together.
