Mix dry ingredients together; cut in lard or shortening until it’s the consistency of coarse meal.<br>2. Slowly blend in milk, just until dry ingredients are moistened.<br>3. Work BRIEFLY w/hands until blended (too much handling makes them tough) Mounding, splitting the dough in half vertically, and stacking it on top of mound, and mashing down, repeating several times results in flaky biscuits that split easily when they’re cooked.<br>4. Pat the dough out on floured cloth or surface to about 1/2-inch thick.<br>(Do not roll too thin.) Cut with floured biscuit cutter or glass tumbler.<br><br>Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake at 400° 8 minutes or until golden brown, then shut off oven & allow them to finish up for the last 2-4 minutes.<br>This results in biscuits that are golden on top, moist but well done inside, but not burned on the bottom.<br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green> [color:green]. . . _ _ _ . . .</font color=green><br>
