Easy Southern-Style Biscuits

I'm not a great baker, but I like to make biscuits to go along with soups and stews. This recipe is simple, but gets great results. There are two keys. The first is to handle the dough as little as possible, and never, ever use a rolling pin. The second is to add the milk slowly - the amount varies between 3/4 - 1 cup to get the right consistency. I don't know why!
