Directions:

Mix flour, shortening, baking powder, sugar and salt.

Put in liquid to make dough.

Run dough through biscuit kneader until blisters form and dough is smooth and satiny.

Cut biscuits and stick with a tiny fork.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.


Use soft wheat flour - Martha White or White Lily; soft gluten will work. Ten pounds of wheat flour will make 5 recipes.

The biscuit kneader I use came from my maternal grandmother, Anna McCord, who lived to be 93.
