  • 2 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tb Sugar
  • 4 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Cream of tartar
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 c Vegetable shortening

Preheat oven to 475 degrees and lightly butter a baking sheet. In a large
bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt.
Blend in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add milk and egg,
stirring until mixture forms a dough, and gather dough into a ball. Turn
dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead 4 times. Pat
dough into a 3/4-inch-thick round and cut out biscuits with a floured
2-inch round cutter. Gather scraps and pat out dough. Cut out more biscuits
in same manner until there are 12 biscuits. Arrange biscuits about 2 inches
apart on prepared baking sheet and bake in middle of oven 10 minutes, or
until pale golden. Transfer biscuits with a metal spatula to a rack to
cool. Makes 12 biscuits.
