chef.tim.lee's picture
Ingredients
  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking powder 3 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Vegetable shortening 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Milk 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
Directions

1. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
2. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles cornmeal.
3. Add milk; stir lightly with a fork until a soft puffy dough forms.
4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly about 20 turns.
5. Roll or pat dough to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut into 2-inch rounds with a floured biscuit cutter, working neatly from rim to middle so there will be few scraps to reroll. Place biscuits on an ungreased cooky sheet 1 inch apart.
6. Bake in a hot oven (450°) 12 minutes or until golden brown.
