Homemade Biscuits from The Caldwell House

2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
4 tablespoons butter or shortening
1/2 tsp. salt
About 3/4 cup milk

Sift flour once, add baking powder and salt, then sift again. Cut in shortening or butter.  (You may want to use your hands to rub the butter into the flour).

Add milk gradually, stirring until a soft dough is formed.

Turn out on slightly floured board and lightly “knead” for 30 seconds, enough to shape.

Roll 1/2 inch thick and cut with 2 inch floured biscuit cutter.

Bake on ungreased sheet in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.

Makes 12 2” biscuits.  You can also make tiny tea biscuits only 1 1/2 inches wide.
