¼ cup shortening

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

 Stir together in a bowl flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut the shortening into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives. The mixture should be crumbly. Stir in the milk with a fork. Stir just until the mixture holds together and forms a ball. Don’t overmix! Drop tablespoons of dough onto prepared baking sheet. Leave a 2-inch space between biscuits so they will brown nicely.
