Step 1

Preheat oven to 475°F.

In a medium bowl stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Pour flour mixture out on a clean surface and make a well by mounting the flour up around the edges, then pour the milk in the middle of the well. Incorporate the flour mixture and milk together until you have created a dough. Roll dough and cut out biscuits. Brush biscuits with butter.

Bake in a 475°F oven for 11 to 15 minutes.
