Ingredients

BELOW IS THE RECIPE AS WRITTEN, MY NOTES ARE WRITTEN IN RED 2  cups sifted OMEGA flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbls lard

2/3 cup milk (used 1/3 c 2% milk and 1/3 c heavy cream)

Directions

  1. Into a mixing bowl sift flour with baking powder and salt
  2. Cut in lard, then add  milk which must be very cold
  3. Mix quickly then turn onto lightly floured board. (Used hands to fully incorporate the dough)
  4. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thick and brush melted butter over the top
  5. Fold the dough over and cut in biscuit rounds through the double thickness.
  6. Brush the tops with a little milk to give a glaze. Set in warm place about half an hour to rise slightly
  7. Bake in oven at 450 10-12 minutes or until brown
  8. This makes about three dozen one-inch biscuits.

As the book progresses the recipes are getting easier to follow without much ad libbing. The only thing I found is that is says the recipe should yield “three dozen one-inch biscuits” but had enough dough to get about half a dozen. This recipe produced a nice biscuit that went great with some country breakfast sausage.
