Easy Baking Powder Biscuits
|All purpose flour||2 Cup (32 tbs), sifted|
|Baking powder||3 Teaspoon|
|Bottled milk/1/3 cup evaporated milk and 1/3 cup water||2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)|
Sift the dry ingredients together; then cut the shortening into them, using two knives in crisscross fashion or a pastry blender, until the mixture is the consistency of coarse corn meal.
Add enough of the milk, while stirring with a fork, to make a soft dough that can be.easily handled.
Turn onto a lightly floured board, and knead lightly- about 1/2 min.
Then roll or pat into a sheet about 1/2" to 1" thick.
Cut into rounds of desired size with a floured cutter, and place on a greased or oiled baking pan.
Place about 1" apart if you like a crusty biscuit.
Place closer together if you do not like the crusty edges.
Knead dough trimmings together, roll out and cut.
Bake in hot oven of 450°F for 12-15 min.
