Original recipe makes 12



Preheat oven to 500F. Place flour in a medium bowl. Add shortening and using pastry blender or two knives, cut in until consistency of coarse crumbs. With a fork, blend in just enough milk until dough leaves sides of bowl. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead 10 to 12 strokes. Roll dough out 1/2-inch thick. Shape with 2-inch cutter. Bake on ungreased baking sheet (place biscuits 1-inch apart for crusty sides or almost touching for soft sides) until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Variations: Increase milk to 1 cup. Drop biscuits by tablespoon onto greased baking sheet or fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Recipe by: Richmond Times-Dispatch Posted to EAT-L Digest by Olukemi Quinn on Marcay,, h 10, 199
