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. FROM: SHERYL JEFFRIES (PVJP03B)
