2 cups sifted flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/3 cup chilled vegetable shortening

3/4 cup milk


Preheat oven to 450. Sift flour with salt and baking powder into a bowl and cut in shortening with a pastry blender until the texture of very coarse meal; make a well in center, pour in milk, and stir briskly with a fork just until dough holds together. Knead gently on a lightly floured board seven or eight times. Roll 1/2″ thick and cut in rounds with a floured biscuit cutter; re-roll and cut scraps. Place on ungreased baking sheets 1″ apart for crusty-sided biscuits, almost touching for soft. Bake 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Serve oven-hot with lots of butter.
