I have had this recipe, the very one pictured above, since the 8th Grade. I will not tell you how many years that has been, but I will tell you I am not joking. Observe the roundish cursive handwriting. Cute, right?
So it probably goes without saying since I've had this recipe so long, it makes good biscuits. Make sure you have fresh baking powder, and they will turn out flaky and delicious.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cut in: 1/4 cup shortening or butter with fork or pastry blender thingie. Stir in 3/4 cup milk. Knead on a lightly floured surface 5 to 6 times. Cut out and place on a baking sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes, or until slightly golden brown.
