My Home Economics class made these biscuits and they were so yummy!  They are from the Betty Crocker Cookbook!  ENJOY!

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup shortening

3/4 cup milk

HOW TO:  Heat oven to 450degrees.

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in medium bowl.  Cut in shortening using pastry blender or criss-crossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs.  Stir in milk until dough leaves sides of bowl (dough will be soft & sticky). Place dough on lightly floured surface.  Knead lightly 10 times. Roll or pat 1/2 in thick.  Cut w/ floured 2 to 2-1/4 round cutter.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 in apart for crusty sides, touching for soft sides.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. SERVE WARM!
