"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
2 cups sifted self-rising flour 1/4 cup shortening 3/4 cup milk
Heat oven to 450º. Cut or rub shortening into flour until particles are as fine as coarse crumbs. Add milk and stir in with a fork. Turn dough out on lightly floured board or pastry cloth and knead just until smooth. Roll dough out about 1/2 inch thick and cut with a floured cutter. Place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
This is the recipe I won 1st place with in the bread-baking contest in 5th grade 4-H.
