No Shortening Biscuits
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup milk, 2%
A little melted butter
Preheat the oven to 450 F.
Spray non-stick spray on a baking sheet.
In one bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
In a second bowl, or in one of those nice 2 cup Pyrex measuring cups, stir together the oil and milk.
Use a fork and quickly stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Count your stirs. Do not go past 20 or stir until the ingredients are only just mixed. Over mixing toughens the biscuit nor will they rise so prettily.
Drop by large spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Leave them lumpy or flatten slightly with your flour dusted fingers. Brush with melted butter and bake for about 10 minutes or until they are lightly browned.
Devour immediately, perhaps with a bit of honey…
