Biscuit recipe

2 c. Flour
4 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
½ c shortening
¾ c milk

Sift flour, baking powder salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with fork or pastry blender until it is in pea size crumbs. Add milk and stir in until just mixed.

Turn dough out on to a floured surface and knead until just mixed – I only knead a few times to make sure they are light and flaky. Roll out to about ¾ inch, cut and place on baking pan. Bake at 450 for about 7 or so minutes (this is not exact, I just usually watch until they are nice and golden brown.)

Makes about 8 depending on thickness and size of the biscuits
