    List of Ingredients

    1/4 cup shortening
    2 cups self-rising* flour
    3/4 cup (approx.) milk


    Preheat oven 450 degrees F. In large bowl, cut shortening into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
    With fork, stir in enough milk to form a soft dough or until dough pulls away from the bowl.
    Turn dough onto floured surface.
    With floured hands knead until smooth, 10 - 12 times.
    Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness.
    Cut with floured 2-inch round cutter.
    Place biscuits, lightly touching, on ungreased baking sheet.
    Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
    *You can always make your own Self-rising Flour.
    How To Make Self-Rising Flour:
    In a large mixing bowl, measure 6 cups of flour.
    Add 3 tablespoons baking powder.
    Add 1 tablespoon salt.
    Either sift together or mix with a wire whisk until well combined.
