Category: Breads

 Ingredients List

  • 3 c Flour
  • 1/4 c Instant lowfat dry milk (I
  • Used nonfat)
  • 1 tb Baking powder
  • 2 tb Sugar (I used less)
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 2 ts Cream of tartar
  • 1/2 c Cold butter in pieces
  • 1/2 c Cold lard
  • 14 tb Cold buttermilk


Pulse the dry ingredients with the butter and lard until grainy, NOT
blended! Add the cold buttermilk, and mix until the dough comes

Place dough on a floured cloth or marble slab, and knead a few times
with floured hands. (Keep the dough cold!) Pat or roll out to
3/4-inch thick, and cut out biscuit rounds or shapes. (You can use a
cookie cutter!)

These biscuits can be frozen ahead, or baked immediately.

Baking time: Bake at 400 degrees F for 13-15 minutes if fresh, and
15-18 minutes if frozen.
