My MIL used to work at the LDS dry pack cannery. She gave me a Family Recipes- Use and Enjoy your Food Storage recipe book printed by the cannery a long, long time ago. I must admit some of the recipes appear a little sketchy, but this biscuit recipe is a keeper.
Baking Powder Biscuits2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
Combine flour, baking powder & salt. Add shortening and use fork to cut in to resemble course meal. Add milk, stir until blended. Transfer dough to lightly floured surface. Knead gently, 8-10 times. Roll dough 1/2 inch thick. Cut into biscuits. Bake 425* for 10-12 mins.

I think they are too dry if you just use 3/4 milk. I always add closer to a cup. And I usually don't roll the dough quite that thin either, I like a nice thick biscuit.
