Hand-Shaped Buttermilk Biscuits

Recipe by Sherri L.
READY IN: 15mins
YIELD: 6 biscuits




  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Measure the flour into a large bowl and cut the lard into the flour with a pastry blender or two forks. The crumbs should be about pea-size.
  • Slowly incorporate the buttermilk until everything is just combined. Don't overwork the mixture. The dough will be wet and sticky.
  • Working with well-floured hands scoop up about ? to ¼ cup of the dough and form the dough into a ball.
  • You may have to dust some additional flour over the ball to make it easier to roll. Gently flatten the dough until it is about ¾ inch thick and place it one the baking sheet.
  • Continue with the remaining dough.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minute or until golden brown.
