Baking Power Biscuits

Recipe from Rosalind W. Noble

2 cups flour 2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt 3/4 cup to 1cup milk
1/3 cup shortening (I use lard)  

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in shortening. Make a well. Add milk to make a soft batter. A fork is better than a spoon in mixing milk into flour mixture. Turn out on floured board and knead quickly about 8 times. Roll to 1/2 inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter and place on greased pan. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
