By request

Biscuits Supreme

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450.

Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center; add the milk all at once. Stir just until dough clings together. Knead gently on a lightly floured surface for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll or pat to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter dipped in flour between cuts. Bake on ungreased baking sheet 10 t 12 minutes or until golden. Makes 10 to 12.

The only variation between this and the ones I made was using butter rather than shortening or margarine. My yield was 12.
