Directions:
Heat oven to 450. Cut shortening into flour, baking powder and salt with pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in just enough milk so dough leaves side of bowl and rounds up into a ball. (Too much milk makes dough sticky; not enough milk makes biscuits dry.)
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 1- times. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart for crusty sides touching for soft sides. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
