Old Fashioned Baking Powder Biscuits Recipe

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons heaping) baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2/3 - 3/4 cup milk
Directions
Preheat oven to 450°. In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Using a fork, cut in shortening until consistency of coarse meal. Add milk, stirring with fork, just until a soft dough forms. Turn dough out onto floured surface, sprinkling lightly with flour. Knead gently, only a few times, until no longer sticky. Roll or press dough to desired thickness (we like ours big and fluffy so I use a large cookie cutter). Place biscuits 1/2 inch apart for soft sides (or 1 inch apart for crusty sides) on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 12 biscuits depending on size.
