How to Make Country Biscuits
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the egg in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to measure 2/3 C and mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl and mix well.
- Cut the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the egg mixture and stir until moistened. Place on a floured work surface and knead gently until the dough is smooth. Do not over handle the dough.
- Roll the dough ½ inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter. Place on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown.
