Ingredients

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
3 Tsp. Baking Powder
1 Tsp. Salt
1/2 C. Shortening
1 Cup Milk

1 additional Cup of Flour


Preheat Oven to 500`


In medium-large bowl, place the flour and cut in shortening with a fork until coarse crumbs form.


Add milk; Mix well. The dough should be soft and wet.


Place extra cup of flour in seperate small bowl.


"Flour" hands and pull of a "biscuit-sized" portion of dough and roll in flour. Roll gently in palm. The center of biscuit should still be soft and wet.


Place on a lightly greased 9-inch pan or cookie sheet (I always use my baking stone)


Flatten "balls" slightly and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.


Serve with country gravy and sausage for breakfast or with a homestyle meal!

Notes

This is a recipe for homemade biscuits that was passed down from my great-aunt to my mom when she was younger and then to me...I have always called them mom's best biscuits because they are soooo great(and super-easy to make)!
