Baking Powder Biscuits

2 cups – Flour

1 Tbs. – Baking powder

1/2 tsp. – Salt

1/4 cup – Shortening (I use margarine)

1 cup – Milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees and lightly grease a baking sheet.

In a bowl mix the flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in the shortening until the mixture has only pea sized lumps.

Add milk until dry mixture is absorbed.

Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto baking sheet.

Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until golden brown.


A quick and easy biscuit recipe that can be whipped up in a flash. You can also add cheese, spices etc. to enhance the flavour.
