Baking Powder Biscuits #6

Home | Recipes | B


  • 1 Bag; (5 lb.) self-rising flour
  • 3/4 c Sugar
  • 2 pk (1 qt.) dried milk
  • 1 1/2 lb Lard
  • 6 c Water


Mix the first three ingredients well using a large shredder. Shred the shortening into the dry mix. Use a pastry blender and cut shortening into fine particles*. Add 6 cups water and stir - turn out on floured board (use part of dry mix as flour). Knead several times. Roll out 1/2-3/4 inch thickness. Cut out and place on ungreased cookie pan. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes or until nicely browned - makes 5 dozen.
This mixture can be made up and stored in large container. Measure out amount needed for biscuits, dumplings, etc., and add liquid as needed. The more moisture you can use the lighter your biscuits.
