|1 tablespoon||Baking powder|
|2 tablespoons||Sugar (I used less)|
|2 teaspoons||Cream of tartar|
|½ cup||Cold butter in pieces|
|½ cup||Cold lard|
|14 tablespoons||Cold buttermilk|
Pulse the dry ingredients with the butter and lard until grainy, NOT blended! Add the cold buttermilk, and mix until the dough comes together.
Place dough on a floured cloth or marble slab, and knead a few times with floured hands. (Keep the dough cold!) Pat or roll out to ¾-inch thick, and cut out biscuit rounds or shapes. (You can use a cookie cutter!)
These biscuits can be frozen ahead, or baked immediately.
Baking time: Bake at 400 degrees F for 13-15 minutes if fresh, and 15-18 minutes if frozen.
