Submitted by: G.E. McIntyre

2 c Flour

1/2 ts Salt

3 ts Baking powder

4 tb Solid shortening

1 c Milk (diluted canned milk will work also)

Directions: Blend flour, salt, baking powder and mash in shortening with a fork until crumbly. Add milk and stir until the dough sags down into trough left by spoon as it moves around the bowl. Turn dough out on a floured surface, knead for 30 seconds, pat out gently until it is 1/2 inch thick. Cut with a round cutter or pinch off pieces of dough and form by hand. Put bisquits into a greased Dutch Oven, cover, and bury in bright coals for 5 or 10 minutes or until golden brown.
