  Difficulty: Easy
Rating: No Rating


1/4 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1 Tb. sugar, if desired
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
Heat oven to 450*. Cut shortening into flour, sugar, baking powder and salt with pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in just enough milk so dough leaves side of bowl and rounds up into a ball. (Too much milk makes dough sticky; not enough makes biscuits dry.)

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 20 to 25 times, about 30 seconds. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart for crusty sides, touching for soft sides. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet.
