Baking Powder Biscuits

My mother made these for me all the time for breakfast. They were my favorites. I think when I was really little I called them bisics. These are from the Better Homes and Garden New Cookbook, page 105, in mine at least. Mine is the 1976 copyright.

A pizza stone works really well. My Mom always made them in a round cake pan.

They're especially good with butter & jam or honey. I bought my blackcurrant jam at Harrods in London. That's about all I could afford at Harrods.

Baking Powder Biscuits
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl, cut in shortening till like coarse crumbs. Make a well, add milk all at once. Stir with fork just until dough follows fork around the bowl. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Knead gently 10 to 12 strokes. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut with round cutter. Bake on ungreased baking sheet at 450 about 12 minutes. Makes 10.
