Yield: Makes 12 biscuits
Piping hot from the oven, these baking powder biscuits will complement any soup or stew.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in lard. Add milk, stirring slowly to make a soft dough. Turn mixture out onto floured surface, knead lightly several times, and shape into a ball. Roll out to 1/4- to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with round or heart-shaped cookie cutters or the rim of a juice glass. Bake 10 to 15 minutes on ungreased baking sheet.
