  1. Instructions Mix and sift twice dry ingredients. Work in vegetable shortening with finger tips, add gradually milk, mixing wit knife to soft dough. Toss on floured board; pat and roll to one-half inch thickness. Shape with biscuit cutter. Place on vegetable shorteninged tin and bake in hot oven twelve minutes. To have good biscuits dough should be handled as little as possible, just enough to get in shape to cut. Milk or water used for mixing should be very cold, and biscuits should be gotten into oven at once after adding liquid to flour. If top of each biscuit is lightly brushed over with melted vegetable shortening before baking, crust will be much nicer. Sufficient for fifteen biscuits.
