Flour and shortening
Blend flour and shortening till it looks like coarse crumbs
Add milk to flour mixture and stir
Sprinkle enough flour on top of dough because it is sticky! (so you can handle it). Scoop out enough to make a biscuit, form in hand and put on greased cookie sheet
Coat a little oil in top of biscuits and put in oven at 450 for 15 minutes or longer if they aren't brown enough.
