Prep 15 m - Cook 10 m - Ready In 25 m
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp white sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
2/3 cup milk
Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt into a bowl. Use a pastry cutter to chop vegetable shortening into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk egg and milk together in a separate bowl and slowly add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring as you pour, until dough is moistened and well-mixed. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto an un-greased baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits have risen and are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
