How to Make It

Step 1

Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt; stir well. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Combine milk and egg, beating well. Pour milk mixture evenly over flour mixture, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

Step 2

Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead 10 to 12 times.

Step 3

Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness; cut with a 1 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Spread biscuits with softened butter; make a crease with a knife across each circle and fold in half. Press edges to seal. Place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until biscuits are lightly browned.
