Sift dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, cutting in shortening with fingers or two knives. When shortening is the size of peas and mixed well, add milk and mix until dough forms a ball. Work the dough with your hands on a lightly floured board. Roll the dough to approximately 1/2 inch thick and cut it with a biscuit cutter.

Bake or 10 to 12 minutes or until brown.

Personal Notes:
When we lived in Houston we visited the San Jacinto memorial and ate at the Inn. The fish was delicious but the biscuits were out of this world.

Editor's note: The flakiness of the finished product is caused by the shortening "boiling" during cooking. The steam generated during the cooking process creates layers within the dough. Some bakers recommend refrigerating the shortening before mixing it in. Try to handle the dough as little as possible so the shortening does not melt. If it melts, you will end up with flat hockey-puck biscuits rather than light and flaky ones.
