  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  3. Cut in crisco with pastry cutter or fork.
  4. Add enough milk to make dough, do not mix too much.
  5. Place dough on flour surface and pat out to about 1/2 inch thick, try not to work it too much the less handled the more tender the biscuit.
  6. Cut biscuits with a floured cutter or glass.
  7. Place on cookie sheet (I use a stone cookie sheet, it makes the biscuits a little crunchy on bottom).
  8. Top each biscuit with just a little bit of butter (no need to melt it, just put a little chunk).
  9. Bake for 15 minutes or until brown on the bottom and top.
