Farmhouse Baking Powder Biscuits

* 2 cups flour
* 4 tsp baking powder
* 2 tsp sugar
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
* 1/2 cup shortening
* 2/3 cup milk

1. Mix the ingredients and knead 8-10 times, about 2 minutes.
2. Pat the dough to 1" thick, and cut the dough with biscuit cutters.
3. Bake 10-12 minutes at 450 F, or until lightly golden brown.  Serve with butter, jam, or eat plain.  Enjoy!

I had all the ingredients on hand because the O-man requested we make Ranger Cookies for school lunches.  It was the first time I made these, though the recipe has been in the family for years and years.  Talk about delicious!!!
