Mom’s Baking Powder Biscuits
My mother always made baking powder biscuits using this recipe. How big you make the biscuits will determine how many you get. Both tasty and simple.
Set the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (230 degrees C).
In a bowl, combine salt, baking powder, and flour.
Shortening should be added and flour should be chopped up into small pieces.
As you add the milk, mix until the dough comes together in a ball.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/2 to 1/4 inch on a floured surface.
Cut out the desired size of the biscuits, then dip them in melted shortening.
On an ungreased baking sheet, arrange the biscuits.
Bake for 12–15 minutes in a preheated oven.
