I don't have a "recipe" perse, just a basic way of making them.

1-2 cups of flour
2 tablespoons powdered buttermilk (optional if you use buttermilk to make)
2 teaspoons baking powder
A couple of shakes of salt
2 HEAPING tablespoons of vegetable shortening
Milk (to consistency)

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add in the shortening and then use your hands to combine it. You have enough shortening when the flour kind of holds form when you squeeze your hands together. Add milk to consistency. For a "drop" biscuit it needs to be runnier, and for a rolled out biscuit it needs to be firmer.

Also, you can add garlic powder and cheddar cheese for YUMMY biscuits (and dill!)!
