Bullets and Biscuits
Til then, Sunday morning thanks and praise is a little nicer with homemade biscuits!
White Lily flour made with soft winter wheat and minimal kneading is the secret to light as a feather, tall, southern style buttermilk biscuits. It's hard to find around here, Meijer stores usually carries it though.
2 cups self rising white Lily flour
1/4 cup lard (yes, lard, the real thing, not Crisco which is full of transfats)
2/3 cup buttermilk (or milk with a dash of lemon juice in it, let sit 5 minutes)
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
Cut lard into flour until the fat is smaller than baby peas.
Mix in milk just until it pulls away from the side of the bowl.
Knead on floured board 2 - 3 times, cut into 8-12 biscuits and place very close together on a baking pan. Bake 8-10 minutes. Serve with butter, honey or preserves and BACON!
