Everyone needs a good biscuit recipe. They are super easy and quick to make and will have you wondering why you've ever bought the ones in a can. These biscuits are pretty fail-proof because they utilize shortening which has a higher melting point. As they bake the flour and shortening are forced apart until the shortening melts. By this point the biscuit will be set, creating that sought after flaky texture. It's pretty amazing. If you wanted to go truly old school you'd use lard. Don't be grossed out, that is exactly what our ancestors used! It's all natural baby!


Ingredients

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening, cold
1 cup milk


Instructions

1. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a mixing bowl.

2. Cut in the cold shortening using a pastry knife or 2-knife method (see cooking lesson below).

3. Gradually pour in the milk, stirring until the dough comes together.

4.  Turn the dough out on a floured surface and work it just until everything is well combined.

5. Roll the dough out about 1-inch thick. Use a circle cutter or a drinking glass dipped in flour to cut out your biscuits. Combine leftover scraps and continue re-rolling and cutting until all dough is used. 

6. Place cut biscuits on a baking sheet and bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes, until the tops are nicely browned.
