2 cups sifted flour
6-7 Tbs. shortening
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup milk
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt into bowl. Add shortening and cut with pastry blender or fingers until the texture of corn meal. Add half of the milk and mix lightly. Add remaining milk a little at a time to make a light dough. Turn out onto floured board and knead as little as possible forming dough into a ball (handling causes tough biscuits). Flour hand and press dough out on board. Pinch off size of biscuits wanted, roll into a ball, flatten slightly and place each biscuit on a greased baking pan. Bake 12 -15 minutes at 450 degrees.
Note: Dough may be rolled out and cut with a biscuit cutter if desired.
