Cut Biscuits Made with Lard

These flaky biscuits are a wonderful addition to any breakfast!  Top them with jelly, butter, or gravy – or just enjoy them plain!
Crooked Gap Farm Cut Biscuits
Mix together :
  2 c flour
  4 tsp baking powder
  1/2 tsp salt
Cut in with pastry cutter or fork:
  2 T cold CGF lard (Our lard will be soft/liquidy at room temp.  Keep it in the fridge until ready for use to have it cut in nicely, forming a flaky biscuit.)
When cutting in lard with a pastry cutter, cover the lard with flour and roll the pastry cutter down – cutting the lard.  Continue cutting the lard until it is evenly mixed with the flour.  This, rather than blending a softened lard into the flour,  is what produces a flaky biscuit.
Stir in with fork:
  3/4 c milk
Knead dough, form into a tube, cut 1/4-1/2 inch thick, lay on pan

Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown ~ 15-20 min
