Mix dry ingredients well, blend in shortening. Beat egg with fork and mix well with water. Add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place on floured board, roll about 1/2" thick, cut with floured 2" biscuit center. Bake in greased and floured pan. (Dough will seem very sticky, but biscuits come out very tender.) Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes.
