2 cups flour
1 tbsp. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup shortening (butter)
1 beaten egg
2/3 cup milk
In food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Add shortening and cut it into the flour mixture.
Add the egg and stir into the flour mixture. (Everything up to this point I did in the food processor). Turn out onto a floured board and knead 20 strokes. Roll out to 3/4-inch thickness. Cut into rounds.
Bake on an ungreased sheet in a 450 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Tip: For soft biscuits, crowd together on sheet, for crisp biscuits, leave space between them!
