Here is the recipe for the Biscuits:

Yield: 8

500 ml flour
15 ml baking powder 3 ml salt
15 ml sugar
80 ml shortening 200 ml milk 


1.   Preheat oven to 375 F. 

2.   Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix to distribute evenly. 

3.   Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or fork until it resembles fine crumbs. 

4.   Make a “well” in the center of the mixture and add milk. 

5.   Mix with a fork until dough can be formed into a soft ball. 

6.   Pat down until about 1.5 cm thick. 

7.   Using a round cutter cut dough into 4 pieces. Roll into a ball again and pat down. Cut out 3 more biscuits. Roll remaining dough into a ball, pat down to make one more biscuit. 

8.   Place on a cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes.
