OLD FASHIONED BAKING POWDER BISCUITS 
2 c. flour
2 tbsp. Crisco
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
Milk

Mix and sift twice dry ingredients. Work in Crisco with finger tips, add milk gradually, mixing with knife to soft dough. Toss on floured board; pat and roll to 1/2 inch thickness. Shape with biscuit cutter. Place on greased tin and bake in hot oven 12 minutes, (about 350 degrees). To have good biscuits dough should be handled as little 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 Crisco before baking, crust will be much nicer. Sufficient for fifteen biscuits.
