Indeed, we think these biscuits live up to their name!
They are very light and fluffy.
Nothin' like hot-out-of-the-oven biscuits and homemade jam!
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, beat egg and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
Turn onto a well-floured surface; knead 20 times. Roll to 3/4 inch thickness; cut with a 2-1/2 inch biscuit cutter. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen
