These drop biscuits with Crisco are great for people with small kitchens. So simple, but oh so good!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup shortening (such as Crisco®)
  • 1 cup milk


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture has only pea-sized lumps. Add milk; mix until dry mixture is absorbed. Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes
