Grandma Bessie's Biscuits

 My Mom's Mother, Grandma Bessie, was well known in our community as the biscuit maker.  She made her famous biscuits for special events at two local church's!
She called them "Short Cake" and passed the recipe down to her family...thank you so much sweet Grandma Bessie...I know you are looking down with delight knowing that your recipe is being carried on to the next generation!!!

"Short Cake":
2 cups sifted flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup solid Crisco
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup milk

Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together.
Cut in the Crisco
Combine the egg & milk and add to above mixture until all is moistened
Pat out on floured mat and cut with a biscuit cutter

Bake at 425 degrees for about 15-18 minutes
