Preparation

BAKING POWDER BISCUITS: In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center. Add milk all at once.

Using a fork, stir just till moistened. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Quickly knead dough by gently folding and pressing dough 10 to 12 strokes or till nearly smooth. Pat or lightly roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter Hint: (if you dont have a biscuit cutter, a glass works well to cut biscuits).

Place biscuits 1 inch apart on a ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 450 oven for 10 to 12 minutes or till golden. Remove from baking sheet; serve warm. Makes 10 biscuits.

DROP BISCUITS: To make drop biscuits: Prepare as above, except increase milk to 1 cup. Do not knead or roll or cut dough. Using a big spoon drop dough into 12 mounds on a greased baking sheet. Bake as directed above. Makes 12 biscuits.

BUTTERMILK BISCUITS: Prepare as above, except stir 1/4 teaspoon baking soda into dry mixture and substitute buttermilk or sour milk for the milk Bake as directed above. Makes 10 to 12 biscuits.

Terrific and easy to make. Served with homemade sausage gravy.

They are easy to make and had good flavor just seemed a bit dry. I also brushed them with butter once they were done. Any suggestions on how to make biscuits that are rolled and cut out more moist and fluffy like if you roll them into balls like my mom does & my grandma did? THANKS!!

Just like my mom used to make. Really. It is exactly her recipe. I grew up on them and raised my own family on them. Just delicious.

I made the buttermilk ones. They were great fresh but after that they had a funny after taste.
