This is the best homemade biscuit recipe ever. Serve this one with my Cabbage Soup or use in the Crockpot Chicken and Dumplings Recipe.

I found this recipe in an Easter basket full of recipes in a (now closed) Indiana antique shop.

Steps 1 – 3 are clipped from somewhere with handwritten notes: “These are good. Best biscuits ever” is penned across the top of it. They are right!

Cut into pieces from some sort of printed material, handwritten comments assured that this recipe was indeed the "Best Biscuit Recipe Ever!"

I agree!


  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1/2 cup Shortening
  • 2/3 Cup Milk


  1. 450* Oven.
  2. Combine dry ingredients.
  3. Cut in 1/2 cup Shortening with a pastry blender. It will have coarse crumbs.
  4. Add in 2/3 cup Milk.
  5. I use the pastry blender to combine it all together.
  6. Dough is soft and easy to work with.
  7. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (I use a cutting board) and knead a few times.
  8. Roll out to 1/2" to 1" thick.
  9. Cut into Biscuits.
  10. Bake 450* for 10-12 minutes.
