Introduction

I like to add a handful of wheat bran to my white flour so it isn't completely devoid of nutrients. I like to add a handful of wheat bran to my white flour so it isn't completely devoid of nutrients.
Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    2 c. all purpose flour
    1 T. baking powder
    1 t. salt
    1/3 c. shortening
    1 c. bottled water

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Combine dry ingredients then cut in shortening.
Add 3/4 cup of the liquid using more only if needed to incorporate the flour.

Knead dough several times on a lightly floured surface. (Don't miss this step or your biscuits won't rise well, regardless of what you have been told)

Flatten dough by hand and cut 10 biscuits using a sharp cutter. Reassemble and re-flatten left over dough until all is used. It will still raise beautifully unless you overdo, and so far, I haven't ever over done the dough and the biscuits raise by 3 times! Place biscuits close but not touching on a cookie sheet.

After baking 10 minutes, tent with aluminum foil if browning too quickly.

serve at once but remember portion control!
