Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
¼ cup vegetable shortening
*
1 cup milk

Directions

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.

Roll or pat out to desired thickness and cut with 2 inch floured biscuit cutter; place on ungreased baking sheet and bake 12 to 15 minutes at 450℉ (230℃).

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.
