Default Old Fashion Biscuits

Look Mr. A1, I'm not trying to be rude or anything, but there are several
groups that would be more appropriate for this recipe.
Try rec.food.cooking or alt.recipes, which are a couple. Honestly "Old
Fashion Biscuites" are somewhat out of place here.

Old Fashion Biscuits

2 cups All-Purpose flour
2 Tbls. baking powder
1/2 Tsp. salt
1/2 cup lard
2/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450 F.
Put 2 Tbls. lard in a skillet and get it hot; grease the sides.
Stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Cut in the lard until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the center.
Pour the buttermilk in all at once.
Stir just until dough clings together.
Knead gently on a lightly floured surface for 10-12 strokes.
Roll or pat to 1/2-1 inch thickness.
Cut with a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter or big mouth jar, dipping the cutter
into flour before each cut.
Transfer to the hot greased skillet, covering each biscuit with a thin
coating of melted lard.
Bake in a 450 F. oven for 10-15 minutes, or until golden.
Makes: 10-12 biscuits.
Serve steaming hot with sweet butter and your favorite jam.
