3 c. White Lily self-rising flour
1/2 c. butter, margarine, or shortening
7/8 to 1-1/4 c. milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix flour into butter in a food processor until well blended or cut in with a pastry blender.
Add enough milk to make a soft dough, and knead five or six times.
Do not over-knead.
Pat dough out onto floured board 1" thick.
Cut biscuits into desired shapes, re-rolling and re-using scraps till dough is used up.
Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake until golden brown.
Baking time varies depending on size of biscuits, 2-3" ones will take about 15 minutes.
