Sour Milk Biscuits

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. soda
1 cup sour milk

Sift flour, salt, baking powder and soda together. Cut shortening in with spatula or mixing spoon. Add sour milk, stir briskly, roll on floured board to desired thickness. Cut in shapes, placing biscuits on pans so they do not touch. Bake in hot oven for about 8 minutes. Brush over top of biscuits some melted butter. If the milk is really sour you may want to increase soda to 1/2 tsp.

    You forgot to put shortening in the ingredients.

    Unfortunately grandma's recipe cards were often like this. Obviously she knew the measure of the ingredients but didn't list. I apologize, a number of these recipes I rejected as I went along. This one slipped through - a review of a number of sour milk biscuit recipes puts the shortening amount between 1 and 2 tablespoons.
