Scratch Biscuits (using plain flour)

  2 cups Adluh Plain Flour
  3 tsp Baking Powder
  1 tsp Salt
  2-3 Tbl Shortening
  3/4 cup Milk cold

 
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut or work in the shortening until it is evenly mixed and then add the cold milk. Turn out on a lightly floured board and pat out (the secret of good biscuits is to handle the dough as little as possible). Roll out to the desired thickness and cut with a small biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on a greased pan or baking sheet and bake at 475 degrees for 8-10 minutes, depending on taste.
