Combine flour, baking powder, and salt and sift into a mixing bowl. Cut shortening into sifted dry ingredients with a postry blender or two knives. Cut until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal. Pour in milk, smallest amount first, and stir with a fork until dough is mixed but rough looking. Add remaining milk if necessary. Work fast.
Pat dough on a lightly floured board about ½ inch thick. The less flour you work into biscuits, the lighter your biscuits will turn out to be. Cut dough with a cookie cutter that has been dipped in flour. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet.
Your Biscuits ( Baking Powder ) is ready. Happy cooking!
