2 c Flour
4 ts Baking powder
1 ts Salt
2 tb Lard
1 c Sweet milk
Sift dry ingredients together. Rub in lard, add milk gradually.
Mix to a smooth dough, roll out 1/2" thick. Cut with biscuit
cutter. Handle as little as possible to make light, flaky
biscuits. Bake in a quick oven.
Many of the recipes in this collection did not contain amounts or
oven temperatures. I have typed them in as they appear in the
book, typos and all.
