2 cups self-rising flour
( if u want to use all purpose flour SHIFT together 2 cups all purposr flour +1 tbs baking powder + 1/4 tsp baking soda + 1/2 tsp salt )
¼ cup shortening
1 cup milk or buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Put the flour in a bowl. With a pastry cutter or your fingers rub the shortening into the flour until the texture is like cornmeal.
Form a hole or well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour the milk or buttermilk into the well.
Use your fork to stir the flour into the milk, stirring in a circle so that a little more flour is incorporated with each pass.
Roll out dough to ½ inch and cut with a 2 inch cutter
optional : I applied egg white mixed with 1 tbs water on top of each biscuit to get the color
Place biscuits onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
