Recipe by Liz Waters
2 cups all-purpose flour***
4 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
2 tbsp. shortening or lard
2/3 - 3/4 cups milk
1 tsp. salt
Blend shortening into dry ingredients until the mixture is about the consistency of
coarse cornmeal. Add milk, stirring mixture until it pulls free from the side of the
bowl...about 1 1/2 minutes. Put dough on floured board and knead for about 1/2 minute.
Roll to about 3/4" thickness. Cut into biscuits with 2"-3" biscuit cutter. Bake in 400
degree oven until slightly brown.
*** White Lily Flour or other soft winter wheat flour preferred.
