Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe
• 2 cups flour
• 4 teaspoons baking powder
• 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
• 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
• 7 tablespoons lard, cold
• 1 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Mix well, and sift again.
With a pastry blender or fork, cut in lard until coarse crumbs form.
Add buttermilk, and mix gently until dough forms and comes together.
Turn dough out onto a floured work surface, and roll or pat out to about 3⁄4-inch thickness. Cut into biscuits, and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for about 12 minutes.
