From "Maw's in the kitchen : you'll know when it's done!" The recipes and history of Gov. Miriam A. Ferguson, the first woman governor of Texas Austin, TX : Eakin Press ISBN 089015953X - A really good book and great biscuits! Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Rub the shortening into this, add the milk, mix lightly but well. Do not knead. Roll out 1 to 2 inches thick, cut into biscuits and bake in a quick oven [450] about 10 minutes.
