1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp shortening
1/2 cup milk
Sift dry ingredients together. Cut shortening in. In a separate bowl, beat egg in milk; add to dry ingredients and mix well. Drop tablespoonfuls of mix into 1/2 inch of pre-heated vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet (is there
any other way to fry??? LOL) Cover and fry until brown on one side on VERY LOW HEAT (about five minutes). Turn and brown on other side. Makes about 12 biscuits.
Not particularly healthy...but exceptionally delicious with strawberry jam or a piece of sausage or eggs.
