Quick & Easy Biscuits
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt.
Cut in shortening with 2 knives or a pastry blender, until mixture is the consistency of coarse cornmeal.
Make a well in centre of these ingredients; add liquid slowly.
When all the liquid has been added, stir dough rather vigorously until it comes free from the sides of the bowl.
Turn dough onto lightly floured board and knead lightly for a few minutes.
Serve warm biscuits with jam or cream or butter if desired.
Variations: You can substitute half wholewheat flour and also add grated cheese and garlic powder.
