My Grandmother taught me how to make biscuits way before I was even a teenager. This is the only recipe I have ever used and they are always a hit.

Ingredients

3 c
self rising flour
1/2 c
lard
pinch
sugar
3/4 c
buttermilk, possibly more
2 Tbsp
melted butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut lard into flour using a pastry blender or two forks, and add the pinch of sugar. Add enough buttermilk to make a soft dough and knead until smooth (do not over knead as this will lend a tough biscuit).
2
With floured hands pinch off a bit of the dough and roll into a ball, lightly flatten in a greased iron skillet or pan. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15-18 minutes. Brush with melted butter when removed from the oven.
