Southern Biscuits

2 Cups Canyon Bounty Farms Flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2tsp soda
1/3 Cup Shortening (I mix a little butter in for flavor)
2/3 Cup sour milk ( I love to use Cloverleaf Milk)

Mix dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening until mix is like small peas. Add in milk then knead gently 20-25 times. Roll out dough on lightly floured board to about 3/4" thickness and cut with biscuit cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Makes about 8 biscuits. Bake at 450 for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

If you don't like them as sweet add 2 tablespoons of sugar instead.

Great way to use up milk that has soured.
