In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; roll to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-in biscuit cutter. Pour syrup into an 11x7-in. baking dish. Place biscuit on top of syrup. Bake at 450° for 12-15 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
