100 year old biscuit recipe, classic baking powder biscuit recipe, Ida Bailey Allen biscuit recipe

I may have  posted this one before but I cant find it and Baby Sister needs it.

100 year old  Biscuit recipe

2 cups bread flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons butter or shortening
3/4 cup milk

Mix all dry ingredients together  first.  Then add butter or shortening....cutting it in with a pastry cutter or fork.  You want your ingredients to be course and flaky before adding the milk. Add milk and stir till a ball forms.  Transfer to a floured bread board and  pat  down  to about 1 inch.  Cut with  a biscuit  cutter.  If you don't have a biscuit  cutter, you can cut your dough into squares.  Put  into a lightly oiled   pan or  cast iron skillet with sides touching.  Bake in a preheated oven at  375-400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
