Preparation of the recipe:

Sift together flour and baking powder.

Stir in salt and sugar.

Cut in the Crisco until the mixture resembles crumbs.

Stir together eggs and milk.

Make a well in the dry mixture and stir in the milk mixture with a fork.

Stir just to moisten, then turn out onto a lightly floured board.

Knead about 15 times, then pat lightly into a circle, about 1/2-inch thick.

(The secret to light and fluffy biscuits is to handle the dough as little as possible) With a sharp round cutter, cut out rounds, without twisting the cutter.

Just give it a sharp tap, then lift straight up (twisting the cutter causes the biscuits to slope over when they are baking) place on a baking sheet.

Bake at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes.

Serve warm.
