Old-Fashioned Biscuits (as shown on Clabber Girl can)
For the biscuits:
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the shortening and mix in so the mixture looks like small clumps. Then add the milk and stir together. Use a hand blender to mix all the ingredients together. Drop the dough on a greased baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Yields about 12 biscuits.
For the gravy:
In a pan, brown the ground sausage until fully cooked. Chop up into small pieces for the perfect size for your gravy. If there is a good amount of grease from your sausage, drain off the grease. If not, skip that step. Once the sausage is cooked, slowly add the flour to the sausage. Gradually stir so that the sausage gets coated with the flour. Add the milk and pepper and stir occasionally until thickens, about 10 minutes. Add more pepper to taste if desired.
