  • Portion size 15 servings


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup lard
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup water (approx.)
  • 1 cup milk (approx.)


In large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Using pastry blender or two knives, cut in lard until fine crumbs form. Stirring with fork, gradually add enough of the water to form ball. Flatten to form circle about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick.

Using 2 1/2-inch (6 cm) cookie cutter, cut out biscuits. Place on baking sheet. Gather dough and repeat. Bake in centre of 425°F (220°C) oven for about 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
