1 egg — lightly beaten
1 cup milk

|Preheat oven to 425~. In a food processor or a large bowl,mix the
flour with the salt,sugar and baking powder.Cut the shortening into the
dry ingredients until the mixture is the texture of cornmeal. Separately
mix the egg with the milk,and stir all but 2 tbs. of this liquid into the
dry mixture. Mix just enough to make a uniformly moistened dough. Drop
spoonfuls of the dough onto a greased and cornmeal coated cookie sheet
about 1″ apart. Brush tops with reserved liquid.Bake in the preheated
oven until puffed and brown,about 12 minutes. Cool for a few minutes
before serving. Yields about 15 biscuits.
