How to Make Country Biscuits


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
