2 cups sifted flour
Sift flour once, measure, add baking powder and salt and sift again. Add shortening and cut into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles fine meal. Add milk (amount depends on kind of flower used) and stir until flour is dampened and mixture forms a soft dough and follows the spoon about the mixing bowl.
Turn out onto a lightly floured board and knead lightly one-half minute. Roll out 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick and cut with a floured biscuit cutter. Arrange on baking sheet and bake in a 450-degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. This will make 12 medium size biscuits.
Sprinkle with seedless raisins, if desired, and roll as for jelly roll. Cut in slices 3/4 inch thick and bake, cut side down, on a lightly greased baking sheet for 10 to 12 minutes, or until done.
