Baking Powder Biscuits


  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter or shortening
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • about 3/4 cup milk


  • Sift Flour once, measure, add baking powder and salt, and sift again.
  • Cut in shortening or butter. (this is where I use my hands by rubbing the butter into the flour).
  • Add milk gradually, stirring until soft dough is formed.
  • Turn out on slightly floured board and lightly “knead” for 30 seconds, enough to shape.
  • Roll 1/2 inch thick and cut with 2 inch floured biscuit cutter or top of a glass.
  • Bake on ungreased sheet in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.

Makes 12 biscuits.
