Baking Powder Biscuits

Biscuits and Gravy

My sister Wanda would always make the best light fluffy biscuits.  I am sure she learned from my Mom, but she got it right.  She would whip them up and have them served with a bit of gravy in no time at all.  Wanda was also known as “Peaches”, her handle on the CB Radio – if you remember those good old times.  Her son Jeromy was “Peach Pit”.  Great memories.  In honor of my sis.

2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

6 T shortening

2/3 cup milk

Combine and mix all dry ingredients, cut in shortening until consistency of meal.  Add milk all at once.  Knead one minute on floured board. Roll out to 1/2 inch thick, cut and transfer to baking sheet. Bake 450 degrees for 12 minutes.
