Beautiful Buttermilk Biscuits 

Being in Canada and all it is difficult to find anywhere that serves fresh buttermilk biscuits or biscuits of any kind for that matter. A problem that is easily solved by quickly and easily whipping up a batch at home!

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup Buttermilk<- click here for a DIY recipe
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp seasoning salt 
  • 2 tbs cold lard 
  1. Sift together all the dry ingredients into a medium sized bowl.
  2. Drop the 2 tbs of cold lard into the flour mix and with a pastry cutter, fork or your good old trusty fingers begin breaking the lard up into the flour until it is pea sized.
  3. Pour in the buttermilk and stir well with a wooden spoon. If your mix is too dry add more buttermilk 1 tbs at a time, if it is too wet add more flour 1 tbs at a time.
  4. Once it is tacky and can be handled dump the dough onto a floured workspace and knead the dough 4 to 5 times.
  5. Add a little more flour to your workspace and form the dough into a log and cut dough into 5 even pieces.
  6. Round the dough into balls and bake in your preheated oven in a small greased cast iron pan or a small greased baking dish for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Remove from heat and immediately brush with butter. Lots of butter, you want it pouring down the sides.
  8. Cover with a clean towel and allow to cool.

You can easily double this recipe if 5 biscuits aren’t enough.
