In a large bowl, add flour and shortening. Cut shortening with pastry knife until crumbs are the size of peas. Blend in enough milk with fork until dough leaves sides of bowl.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead gently 2 to 3 times. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut using floured 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place on prepared baking sheet 1-inch apart for crisp sides or almost touching for soft sides.
