Best Old-Fashioned Biscuits (posted 04/14/2020 by Paul T)

I discovered this recipe in a turn-of-the-century cookbook, and have yet to find a better biscuit anywhere. They're simple but amazing.

2 cups sifted flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 425°.

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening with two forks until mixture looks like coarse corn meal.

Remove about 1 cup of this mixture to a small bowl and blend with the milk to form a paste, but do not try to smooth the mixture. Stir this mixture into the remaining dry mix.

Transfer the soft dough to a floured board. Knead lightly. Roll out to about 3/4" thick. Cut with a floured biscuit cutter or small juice glass (about 2" in diameter).

Bake at 425° for 20 minutes, or until the biscuits look light golden brown.
