Recipe by  

"This country fair award-winning recipe was perfected by my grandmother on the northern Canadian prairies. Sadie's advice - leave little chunks of lard the size of peas when cutting the flour in. Can be served at breakfast, lunch, or dinner."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, and baking powder. Cut lard into flour mixture using a pastry blender until crumbly; stir in buttermilk. Turn mixture onto a floured surface and knead just a few times to form a moist dough.
  3. Roll dough out 1-inch thick; cut biscuits with a cookie cutter or round glass. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden, about 12 minutes.

My family love love loved these. I didn't have lard so I used butter. This is a keeper!

This is a great biscuit recipe! My biscuits turned out fluffy, soft, and flaky. All I changed was substituting out half of the lard and replacing it with butter for more flavor. As with any biscuit recipe, you want to make sure your fat is cold. My lard had been in the freezer and my butter was cold from the fridge. It's also essential that you don't overwork the dough. I found chef john's buttermilk biscuit techniques very useful (the video is on allrecipes).

Eating one right now right out of the oven, so good w/butter! Very easy, only had the Crisco baking sticks, but that made it even easier to cut in with the pastry blender. The flavor is great, with a little bit of a crunchy top, baked on stoneware, delish!
