Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In mixing bowl, cut in shortening, flour, salt, baking powder with pastry blender or electric mixer till it resembles fine crumbs.
  • Pour milk into the mix, stirring gently with a spoon till the dough is gooey.
  • With a soft rubber spatula, gently scrape the sides of the bowl, dipping the spatula into flour to keep it from sticking.
  • When you have the sides cleaned of dough, pat flour on the top of the dough ball. (This is a gooey dough, which is why they're so soft and moist!)
  • Turn the dough ball out on a floured surface so it doesn't stick easily.
  • Gently press the dough to about a 2" thickness with your floured hands.
  • Cut into squares or use a round biscuit cutter, dipping the cutter each time into flour.
  • Place pieces about 1" apart onto a lightly greased baking sheet (the Air Bake pans keep them from burning on the bottom).
  • Bake about 30 minutes, till they are lightly browned on top. They will be very moist on the inside, and very thick.
  • Serve with butter and jam and honey and a big glass of ice cold milk. Oh my, these are soooooo goooooood!!

    WOW-- 30 MINUTES WAS AN ERROR! It really should be 20 minutes or even less, depending on the size you make them and how hot your oven is. I apologize!!

    I'm glad I checked mine at 21 minutes because they were done. I could have pulled these out at 20. Is 30 correct? These things are huge! I cut them into four pieces. One filled me up for breakfast! Nice. Thank you! I attached some pictures and put a thread in IMI 12/15/13

    just made them. there are light and moist. I hate heavy biscuits. these are by far the best. I am going to try coconut oil instead of Crisco next time hope they turn out.
