  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Shortening 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Baking powder 3 Teaspoon

  Salt 1 Teaspoon

Cut in shortening thoroughly, until mixture looks like meal.
Stir in almost all the milk.

Round up dough on lightly floured cloth-covered board.
Knead lightly 20 to 25 times, about 1/2 minute.
Roll 1/2 inch thick.
Cut with floured biscuit cutter.
Place on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
