Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, celery salt and pepper,. Add 3 tablespoons shortening and mix in thoroughly with fork or pastry blender. Add milk and mix just to blend. Cook onions in 2 tablespoons shortening. Add tomato soup and ground beef; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 3 or 4 minutes. Pour mixture into a 2 quart casserole dish. Spread baking powder mixture on top of meat. Bake in 450F oven for about 20 minutes. Turn upside down on large plate. Serves 8.
