This is how biscuits are supposed to be. Of course, that doesn’t mean they always turn out like mom makes them – there is a skill to it that I’m still developing.


  1. 1Mix dry ingredients together.
  2. 2Cut in shortening until coarse crumbs.
  3. 3Stir in milk all at once. Knead for 30 seconds (as little as possible).
  4. 4Roll out, cut. Place on cookie sheet.
    Can brush melted butter on tops before baking.
  5. 5Bake 450 ° for 10-12 minutes.
