How to make it

  • Sift dry ingredients into bowl.
  • Cut in the shortening till like coarse crumbs.
  • Make a well; add milk all at once.
  • Stir quickly with fork just till dough follows fork around bowl.
  • Turn onto lightly floured surface. (Dough should be soft.)
  • Knead gently 10-12 strokes.
  • Roll or pat dough to 1/2"-1" thick.
  • Dip cutter in flour; cut dough straight down -- no twisting.
  • Bake on ungreased baking sheet at 450 for 12-15 minutes.*
  • *I only bake mine for 10 minutes. The baking time will vary based on how your oven runs, mine runs a little hot so if I bake them for the time specified in the recipe they will burn.
  • Drop Biscuits
  • Increase milk to 1 c.
  • Drop from teaspoon onto greased baking sheet.
  • Bake according to directions above.

    @Gkwillow I use Crisco when I bake them, not butter. The recipe in the cookbook specifically says shortening.
    @22566 Thanks for the welcome back. I've been around, just haven't added any recipes lately. The reason I added this one is because my little sister has their new cookbook and it isn't in there. I figured that it's always good to have an quick and easy biscuit recipe on hand. :)

    How cute! A cantaloupe-eating cat! :) I will be giving these biscuits a try soon. What do you like to use for the shortening? Crisco? Butter?

    This is a perfect powder biscuit presentation.
