Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a bowl mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the shortening until the mixture has only pea sized lumps. Add milk and mix until dry mixture is absorbed. Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.

My husband is the biggest kid/picky eater out there. The first time I made these, they were a bit dry. I always used half a recipie, cuz it's just the two of us until our daughter gets older. Well, I added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. It was just the kick it needed! Heather Adam Austin, TX

I couldn't think of a faster, easier way to make light and fluffy biscuits. I even substitited margarine for shortening and they were still perfect!

I used butter-flavor crisco and buttermilk instead of milk. These were surprisingly tender but a little bland. I won't make them again.
