    About this recipe: This recipe will produce the biggest biscuits in the history of the world! Serve these gems with butter, preserves, honey, gravy or they can also be used as dinner rolls...you get the picture. The dough can also be prepared several hours, and up to a day ahead of time. If so, turn dough out onto aluminum foil that has been either floured, lightly buttered or lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Roll up foil until it is sealed, and refrigerate.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon white sugar
    • 1/3 cup shortening
    • 1 cup milk

    Directions
    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
    2. 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.
    3. Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead 15 to 20 times. 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.
    4. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to brown.

    My wife and I liked the biscuits, they tasted good enough. Next time I make them I may add cheddar cheese. I didn't have shortening so I used butter. - 13 Apr 2014
