Mix all together. NOTE: You don’t need to cut the shortening into the flour first.
Generously sprinkle dough board with additional flour. Knead dough until slightly stiff. Roll out to about 1” thick and cut into circles.
Bake at 400 degrees on a greased baking sheet. Serve warm. Enjoy!
Una always used Crisco when making these biscuits. But you can use one of the new organic veggie shortenings, such as Spectrum.SERVING TIP: Top your hot biscuits with Chocolate Gravy (as shown). Check out Dixie's recipe for Chocolate Gravy here
