Baking Powder Biscuits

Baking Powder Biscuits

2 C flour

1/2 tsp salt

4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp cream of tartar

2 tsp sugar

2/3 C milk

1/2 C shortening. (I use either margarine, or butter flavored Crisco)

Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, cream of tartar, and sugar. Cut in shortening until course like meal. (Use two knifes to cut it in). Add milk all at once and stir with fork until dough follows in a form around the bowl. Pat and roll to 1/2 inch thickness. (If it won't hold together, add a little more milk. Instead of rolling it out, I just form it in to biscuits in my hand. I make them thicker than 1/2 inch) Bake on ungreased pan. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
