1/3 cup vegetable shortening, cold or frozen
1 cup milk
2 TBS butter, melted
PREHEAT oven to 425 degrees. You will need a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt,
and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse
meal. Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the
bowl. Don't over-mix the dough once you add the milk and only pat
together (no real "kneading" or they will be tough).
Turn out onto a floured surface and pat or roll dough out to 1
inch thick. Cut biscuits with a large cutter or juice glass dipped in
flour. Repeat until all dough is used. Brush off the excess flour, and
place biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Brush the melted butter over the biscuits and bake for 13 to 15
minutes or until edges are golden brown. Brush again with butter and
stand back. There will be a stampede to get to these cat heads.
