Tea Biscuit Dough

Tea Biscuit Dough – Purity Cook Book
Combine in a large bowl with a fork:
2 cups flour (white, whole wheat or a mixture)
4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

With a pastry blender or two knives cut finely in:
1/ cup shortening
1 cup milk

Stir with fork to make soft dough and add more flour if desired. Turn dough onto a light floured surface and knead 8-10 times.  Put aside and cover bowl for about 5 minutes for raising (you can leave this step out, if you like).

To make biscuits:

Roll or pat to desired thickness and cut with cookie cutter, place on baking sheet and bake 1-15 minutes at 425 degrees. I make mine thin and place them on top of each other, so they are easy to open for buttering!
