Lard Biscuits

2 cups all-purpose flour
4 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
3 T lard
3/4 cup milk, cold or at room temperature

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease baking sheet.

2. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in
lard with fork until mixture is crumbly. Add milk all at once
and mix until flour is completely wet. Knead dough in bowl with
one hand for 15 seconds. Turn dough out onto lightly floured 
surface and roll to 1/2-inch thick. Cut biscuits with 2-inch
or 2-1/2 inch biscuit or cookie cutter. Place biscuits on
greased baking sheet.

3. Bake at 450 for 12 minutes or until done (lightly brown,
with just a hint of dark brown at the edges)

Makes 10 biscuits.

contain any trans-fat so it's better for you than shortening)
