  Categories: Breads
       Yield: 15 servings
  
       2 c  All-purpose flour
       1 tb Baking powder
       1 ts Salt
     1/3 c  Vegetable shortening
       1 c  Whole milk
  
   Recipe by: BAKERS' DOZEN (MARION CUNNINGHAM) SHOW Preheat the oven to 450.
   Grease on 8-inch square baking pan or small baking sheet. Put the flour,
   baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the vegetable
   shortening and toss it to coat with the flour. Break the chunk into 5 or 6
   smaller chunks and start rubbing the flour and shortening together with
   your fingers and letting the mixture fall back into the bowl. This does not
   take long; when the mixture looks like irregular lumps you have mixed
   enough. Add the milk all at once and stir to moisten all the flour and
   shortening. Dust a surface with flour, turn the dough onto the surface and
   knead the dough ten times. Pat the dough into a circle about 1/2 to 3/4 of
   an inch thick. Cut the biscuits with a two-inch cookie cutter and place on
   the prepared pan with a little space between the biscuits. Bake 15-18
   minutes or until the tops are lightly browned. Serve hot with butter and
   honey.
