This is a rather simple recipe, but it's a good one that I recently stumbled across. We enjoy it every week for breakfast with hot gravy on top. And we're looking forward to June when our strawberries are ripe and we can have fresh strawberries with our biscuits! I usually double the recipe. They are also yummy with our homemade jam. Mmmmm...
2 C flour
1 Tbs baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 C shortening
1 C milk
Whisk together the dry ingredients. Cut in the shortening. Gradually stir in the milk. Knead it a bit.
Pat it out to about an inch thick. Dip a glass jar into flour and use it as a cookie-cutter to cut out the biscuits, putting them on an ungreased baking sheet. Keep doing this until all the dough is used up.
Bake at 425 for 13-15 minutes.
