A classic biscuit laced with maple sugar. A welcome bit of New England for this dinner menu and also for breakfast.
Sift dry ingredients into a bowl. Cut in shortening. Add milk to make a soft dough. Place on a floured board and toss lightly. Roll out to ½-inch thick and cut with floured biscuit cutter. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Brush tops of biscuits with melted butter and sprinkle with maple sugar. Bake in a 450 degrees F oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
