Baking Powder Biscuits
This is a basic recipe, without sugar.

2 c flour, sifted 1/4 c shortening
1 T baking powder 2/3 to 3/4 c milk
1 t salt  

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening until mixture has texture of corn meal. Add in 2/3 c of the milk and stir quickly to make a soft dough, not sticky. If dough is too stiff, stir in remainder of the milk. Turn dough onto floured surface and knead about 10 times. Roll out to 1/2 to 3/4 inch thickness, and cut into rounds. Place 1 inch apart for crusty biscuits, and closer together for softer biscuits. Repeat with remaining dough: press together, roll out and cut. Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes or until browned.
