BUTTERMILK BISCUITS TO DIE FOR!
Buttermilk Biscuits to Die For!
- Cooking Time: 12 minutes
- Servings: 10 biscuits
- Preparation Time: 5 minutes
- 2 cups self rising flour
- 1/2 cup lard (yes, the real stuff!)
- 1 cup buttermilk
- Extra flour for rolling the dough
Cut the lard into the flour using a pastry cutter or fork until it is pea sized balls.
Add the buttermilk 1/4 cup at a time, stirring after adding the milk.
Do not overstir the dough, mixing just until moistened.
Sprinkle flour on your rolling surface and scrape the dough onto the
flour. Knead the dough 2 or 3 turns only and then roll to a
thickness of 1/2 inch. Cut rounds with a biscuit cutter and place
the rounds on a baking sheet, without touching the sides of the rounds.
Bake 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from the oven and enjoy with
your favorite butter and jam or jelly.
