Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe
- 5 pounds self-rising flour
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1 cup lard, melted
- 2 quarts buttermilk
- 1 cup 2% milk
- 1/4 cup bacon drippings
step 1: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 2: In a large bowl, stir together the self-rising flour and baking powder. Pour in the melted lard and mix until blended. Stir in the buttermilk and milk just until the dough comes together.
step 3: Pat the dough out on a lightly floured surface and roll to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut into biscuits using a biscuit cutter or round cookie cutter. Place on baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Brush the tops with bacon drippings.
step 4: Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bottoms and tops are lightly browned.
