A couple of observations

1) Biscuits made with lard taste different that biscuits made with butter.

2) Biscuits made with lard are #$%&^@ DELICIOUS omg why did this ever stop happening!???!

God bless pig fat. (Well, unless you’re Jewish or Muslim I guess.)

This is the recipe I used:


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup lard
2/3 cup vanilla almond milk


Position rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Set aside a large ungreased baking sheet.

In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Hand mix the lard. Gently add in milk to make a soft dough. With floured hands knead dough gently 4 times in bowl.

Turn biscuit dough onto lightly floured surface. Roll the dough to about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick. Cut with a floured 2″ cutter. Place the cut-out biscuits about 1″ apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake in oven until biscuits are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Serve these delicious lard biscuits piping hot.
