Your ingredients are:
2-1/4 C Self-Rising Flour
3/4 C Crisco
1 C Milk
Using a pastry cutter or food processor, mix flour and Crisco to coarse meal. Dump into bowl and stir in milk.
Dump onto flour covered board and pat into a 8x10 or so rectangle, adding a little flour as needed, until dough is no longer sticky. This is a very soft dough. Well-floured hands are important, unless you really like dough gloves. Fold dough in half, several times, patting it back to 8x10 or so between each folding. Pat into a nice, clean 8x10,
Cut into a dozen 2-1/2" squares.
Preheat oven to 425. Place biscuits on a cookie sheet, a couple of inches apart. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy.
