Why I Love This Recipe

The base of this recipe comes from an old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. I changed things here and there and came up with a biscuit that even my Yankee husband loves to eat!

2 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 t. salt
1 T. baking powder
2 T. lard, chilled (yes, lard)
2 T. butter, chilled
3/4 c. buttermilk
flour for dusting work area
melted butter


In a medium sized bowl, sift flour, salt and baking powder.

Using a pastry blender, add lard and butter.

Cut it in until pieces are about the size of pea gravel.

Make a well in the center of the mixture.

Pour buttermilk into center of well.

Stir with a fork until dough comes together. Do not overmix.

Turn out onto clean counter top dusted with flour.

Knead about 6 to 8 times.

Roll out dough to about 1/2 inch thick
