Recipe Ingredients for baking powder biscuits

1 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
3/4 cup milk

Recipe Directions for baking powder biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 425*F ( 220*C).

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in the shortening using a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse corn meal.

  3. Using a fork, stir in just enough milk so that dough leaves side of bowl and rounds up into a ball. (Too much milk will result in sticky dough, too little and biscuits will be dry.)

  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead lightly a few times, about 30 seconds.

  5. Roll to 1/2 to 3/4-inch thickness and cut with a floured 2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet about 1-inch apart for crusty sides, or together for soft sides.

  6. Brush tops liberally with melted butter.

  7. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove immediately from baking sheet and serve hot.
