1Biscuit Baking Time!!!! Assemble all ingredients, I Love organization, preheat oven to 425* Place 4 cups of flour in large mixing bowl, whisk in baking powder, salt & Sugar stir well. Gradually cut in your shortening until flour becomes "gravely" slowly pour in your milk stirring well, with floured hands pour your dough out onto a well floured work surface....knead 15-20 times, roll out and cut your biscuits.

Remove them from the oven and brush tops with melted butter.
