Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
cup vegetable shortening
*
1 cup milk
whole

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450.

Grease on 8-inch square baking pan or small baking sheet.

Put the flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.

Add the vegetable shortening and toss it to coat with the flour.

Break the chunk into 5 or 6 smaller chunks and start rubbing the flour and shortening together with your fingers and letting the mixture fall back into the bowl.

This does not take long; when the mixture looks like irregular lumps you have mixed enough.

Add the milk all at once and stir to moisten all the flour and shortening.

Dust a surface with flour, turn the dough onto the surface and knead the dough ten times.

Pat the dough into a circle about ½ to ¾ of an inch thick.

Cut the biscuits with a two-inch cookie cutter and place on the prepared pan with a little space between the biscuits.

Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned.

Serve with jam, whipped cream or butter if desired.

Note: Currants or raisins can be added to batter.
