Inspired by my sister-in-law, Dale's, story about her grandmother frying biscuits on the stovetop.
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup dry milk
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Cut in the shortening. Make a well in center and add water a little at a time. Knead in the bowl for about half a minute. Lightly grease and preheat skillet
to about medium heat. Pinch off dough in balls about the size of a marshmallow. Form into flat disks and fry biscuits for about 5-7 minutes per side. Don't make the biscuits too big or they will burn on
the outside before they are done on the inside.
Makes about a dozen.
