- Cookie Sheets
- Dinner Forks
- Mixing Bowls
- Pastry Blenders
- Rolling Pins
- Cookie sheets
- Mixing bowls
- 1 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutters
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Use a dry fork to stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Cut in shortening, using a pastry blender, two knives or your fingertips, until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the center of the mixture and add all of the milk. Stir with a fork until mixture is moist.
Place dough on a lightly floured surface. Knead gently, turning the dough, until soft and smooth.
Roll dough out to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut biscuit shapes out of the dough using a biscuit cutter or a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter.
