  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat Oven to 450 degrees
  2. In the small bowl combine Flour, Baking Powder and Baking Soda.
  3. Place Butter and Lard in the medium mixing bowl. Make sure the butter is the same consistency as the Lard. Too hard, it will be harder to work with. Too soft, it will soak in. Either way, no good.
  4. A word about Lard. It is animal fat. If it is in the refrigerated section, it is NOT Hydrogenated. DO NOT Substitute with shortening. It will taste better with Lard and Lard IS better for your than shortening. Do you research...
  5. Sift the combined dry ingredients over the lard and butter. Cut in the lard/butter till it is a crumbly consistency.
  6. Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk, then sprinkle the salt over onto the buttermilk.
  7. Starting from the center and working your way out in a circular motion, combine the ingredients with a spoon until JUST combined. It should be a sticky lumpy dough.
  8. Turn out the dough onto a floured surface. Flour your hands and kneed NO MORE THAN 3 TIMES, handling the dough as little as possible.
  9. Flatten it out with your hands till it is about a 1/2 inch thick. Do not use a roller.
  10. Cut it with a knife into squares. Makes 8-12.
  11. Rub some Lard on your palms and rub onto a cookie sheet. Then get some more lard on your hands and pat the tops of the Biscuits, then transfer the Biscuits 1/4 in apart onto the cookie sheet and Bake for 12-15 minutes 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  12. Biscuits are done when they are golden Brown and Delicious. Serve immediately and enjoy!!!
