This one of my great grand mothers recipes. There a lot of others that I will post later
2 cups sifted all-purposed flout
3 tsp. double-acting baking powder
1 tap. salt
4 to 5 pure lard
about 2/3 cups milk
Sift dry ingredients once or twice. Blend with lard with a pastry blender until crumbs are size of small peas. Add milk enough to hold together. Toss out on slightly floured board, knead slightly, folding dough over about six times. Roll out to 1/4 inches thick, cut with a floured biscuit cutter, and brush tops with cream or melted pure butter. Bake on aluminum baking sheet, with biscuits about 1/2 inch apart. Place on top rack in a 450* oven, and bake for 12-15 minutes. Yield 16 biscuits.
