 1/2     cup shortening  More for the pan
   5      cups all-purpose flour
 1/2     cup sugar
   4      teaspoons baking powder
   2      teaspoons salt
 1 1/4  cups milk
   4       eggs,  large

The finished dough should be soft but not sticky, so you may have to add a

4) Bake until the biscuits are deep golden brown and light to touch when you
pick one up, about 20 minutes.  If some of the biscuits are browning more
quickly than others, rotate the pan after about 10 minutes.  Break apart and
