This is a true southern recipe and it uses lard . It makes a BIG difference if you use shortening! I tested recipes before I opened a diner and this recipe won hands down. The best compliment I got was when an elderly gentleman said "These biscuits are the closest to my mama's that I have ever tasted !" Keep leftovers in the fridge or freeze . They reheat great in the microwave. Also store lard in the fridge. It lasts longer and it's already chilled for use!
