  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the shortening and work it with your fingers, or with a fork or pastry blender, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the milk and black pepper and stir with a fork just until a soft dough forms. Use immediately.
