shortening or lard
milk to which has been added 1 teaspoon of vinegar
or 1 ½ cups buttermilk if you have it
Blend with fork or sift flour baking powder and salt.
Cut shortening into flour until very small. I use my fingers for this.
Make a well in center of flour mixture and pour a little bit of the milk in the biscuits, stirring between additions, until flour is just taken up by the milk.
What you should be left with is a ball of dough that looks neither too wet nor too dry to handle.
Pinch off small balls of dough rolling very gently between the hands into balls.
Touch the dough as little as possible to do this (don't knead).
Bake in a 400°F oven until starting to brown.
