Baking Powder Biscuits~by Kelsey

This recipe is from my Pillsbury Complete Cookbook.  I make them often.  They are quick and easy and yummy.

2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup milk

Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  Mix well.  With a pastry blender or fork, cut in shortening until the mixture resembles course crumbs.  Stirring with a fork, add enough milk until the mixture leaves the sides of the ball and forms a soft, moist, dough.  (This should be about one cup.)  On a floured surface, toss dough lightly until no longer sticky.  Roll or press dough to 1/2 inch thickness.  Cut with a 2-inch round cutter (I have found that the top of a wine glass cuts perfect sized biscuits).  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm.
