Baking Powder Biscuits

Growing up we each had a night of the week that we were responsible to cook dinner on. My mom helped us of course, but this allowed us to learn to cook and plan meals. My older brother loved making these simple but delicious biscuits when it was his turn.

3 C. Flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 Tbsp shortening
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1 c. milk

Mix flour, salt & baking powder in bowl. Mix shortening into flour mixture with hands. Add milk quickly until dough cannot move with a spoon. Roll out on a floured surface, cut using a round cutter. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes.
