This country fair award-winning recipe was perfected by my grandmother on the northern Canadian prairies. Sadie's advice - leave little chunks of lard the size of peas when cutting the flour in. Can be served at breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 cup lard

  • 2 cups buttermilk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  2. Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar, and baking powder. Cut lard into flour mixture using a pastry blender until crumbly; stir in buttermilk. Turn mixture onto a floured surface and knead just a few times to form a moist dough.

  3. Roll dough out 1-inch thick; cut biscuits with a cookie cutter or round glass. Place biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until tops are golden, about 12 minutes.
