Baking powder Buiscuits

   My family loves homemade biscuits, this recipe is simple and tastes great. It also is cheaper to make than store bought which is why I do it, plus I know and can spell everything in it. lol

 Baking Powder Biscuits

2 cups Flour, All-purpose – sifted 
1 tablespoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup Shortening
3/4 cup Milk

•Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal or crumbs.
•dig out a hole in the middle of the flour-shortening mixture and stir in enough milk to make
 a soft dough  You don't want to over mix, just enough to pull from the sides of the bowl and it starts chasing your fork
•Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently  .
•Roll 3/4" thick.  Cut with a 2 1/2" cutter; place close together on a baking sheet for soft sides
 1" apart for crusty sides on ungreased baking sheet. You can use parchment paper. Bake in very hot oven (450°) for 10-12 minutes. 
  
They stand up good with gravy, which my hubby has to have along with it......

  1. Biscuits are a standard around here. Quick go to when all you have is store bought bread. I love them them with fresh butter and honey. Great with all of the soups we eat this time of year. Thank you for the recipe.
