“This is my grandmother's biscuit recipe. It is my all-time favorite and has a really good flavor to it. Be sure not to roll out too thin, you want high biscuits! I usually just pat out the dough to the desired thickness, usually 1/2 inch.” - by IMACOOKY1
Original recipe yields 1 dozen biscuits
- Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
- Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt into a bowl. Use a pastry cutter to chop vegetable shortening into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk egg and milk together in a separate bowl and slowly add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring as you pour, until dough is moistened and well-mixed. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits have risen and are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

"Only change I made was to use butter. Delicious, great texture, baked up perfectly. This will be my new go-to biscuit recipe! A tip is to grate the butter into the flour mixture, then just stir toget..." See moreher - great way to get the butter into the right size pieces."
"Fluffy, just a tad sweet and plump enough that you can skip rolling and cutting - super easy!..." See more"
