Old Fashioned Fluffy Biscuits

Recipe by Elease Wigfall

What is more traditionally Southern than fluffy biscuits bathed in butter? These are sinful with dinner, terrific toasted and slathered with butter and marmalade the next morning.

4 cups self-rising flour
2/3 cup solid vegetable shortening
Approximately 1 cup milk.

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. In a large bowl, mix the flour and the shortening with a wooden spoon until blended.

3. Add the milk, a little at a time, until a soft dough forms. Do not overbeat.

4. Spread a piece of waxed paper on the counter and sprinkle with flour. With a rolling pin or the palms of your hands, pat the dough out until it is about 1/2-inch thick. Cut with a small glass or biscuit cutter.

5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until just beginning to color.

Makes approximately 2 dozen biscuits.
