Lucy Greer shares this family recipe in honor of her grandmother, Posey!


  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup Crisco shortening, cubed
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cup milk


Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. Add shortening. Cut shortening into dry ingredients using a fork or a pastry cutter. Shortening should be about the size of peas.

Gently mix in milk. Add a little more milk if needed just so dough comes together. Do not over mix.

Roll dough out onto a floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out biscuits and place on a parchment lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with non stick spray.

Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.
