   Nathalie Dupree’s Matter of Taste Cookbook and they
   are really good and easy too! Preheat oven to 450 to
   500 degrees. Sift 2 cups of flour with the baking
   powder and salt in a bowl.  Cut in the shortening with
   a pastry blender or fork, or work in with your
   fingers. Add the milk to make a soft dough, mixing
   just until the dough holds together. Flour your hands.
   Pull off a piece of dough the size of a biscuit and
   dip the wet edge into extra flour. Then roll or pat
   into a biscuit shape.  Place the biscuits, slightly
   touching, on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake
   until golden brown 8 to 10 min. Makes 12-18 biscuits.
