Petit Southern Biscuits

3 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons vegetable shortening
3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450˚ F. In a mixing bowl, sift flour, salt and baking powder together. Cut-in shortening. Add milk, mix by hand. Mixture should be in crumbles. Turn out on floured surface, kneed. Roll out to 1/2 inch thick, cut into mini biscuits. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven, cool.
