Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup of shortening

  • 2

    cups self rising flour

  • 2/3

    cups milk

Directions

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Cut shortening into flour with a pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in just enough milk so dough leaves side of bowl and rounds up into a ball. (Too much milk makes dough sticky; not enough makes biscuits dry.) Turn dough onto lightly floured cloth-covered board. Knead lightly ten times. Roll or pat dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 2 inch biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart for crusty sides, touching for soft sides. Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Bacon Biscuits: Stir 1/2 cup crispy fried and crumpled bacon into flour shortening mixture. Buttermilk Biscuits: Substitute 3/4 cup buttermilk for the milk. Cheese Biscuits: Stir in 1/2 cup shredded cheddar or process American cheese with the milk. Chive Biscuits: Stir in 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon snipped chives with the milk. Curry Biscuits: Stir in 1/4 teaspoon curry powder into the flour.
