Gloria's Perfect-Every-Time Biscuits


In a large mixing bowl:

2 cups flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Work in 1/2 cup shortening (I use butter-flavored Crisco).  Break 1 egg into a cup and fill the rest of the cup with milk. 

Pour milk and egg into flour and shortening mixture and mix until all ingredients are just blended.  Don't overmix.

Pour onto a floured cutting board and gently shape with floured hands until dough is about 1 inch thick.  Cut with biscuit cutter and place biscuits in a greased 9-inch cake pan.  Keep gently tucking edges of remaining dough into shape but don't handle any more than needed.

Bake biscuits in oven at 350 degrees until lightly golden brown.  Serve hot with butter and honey or with chipped beef or sausage gravy.
