- 2 cups of all-purpose flour

- 1 tablespoon of white sugar
- A third of a cup of shortening
- 1 cup of milk
- Start by preheating the oven to 425°.

- Gently knead the dough about 20 times on a well-floured surface. Make a 1inch of thickness dough, patted or rolled out. Cut Biscuits using a big cutter or a floured juice glass. Keep going until all of the dough has been used up. Get the excess flour brushed off the biscuits and set them on an ungreased baking sheet.
- In your preheated oven, start baking for about 15 minutes or until you notice the sides getting brown.
- You can knead the extra flour into the dough on a floured tabletop until it no longer adheres to your fingertips. To achieve the appropriate thickness, pat out the dough to the desired thickness. Cut the biscuits with a cutter and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.
- It’s very important not to over-mix it. You should keep in mind that over-mixing the dough will only result in having tough biscuits. Nothing is worse than getting a flat and tough biscuit, in our opinion. When you’re adding the milk into the flour mixture, you should always use caution. Instead, the biscuits will have a texture of a flour brick rather than the amazing fluffy, light, and delightful biscuits we all desire to eat.
