In large bowl, whisk together flour, milk powder, sugar, baking powder and salt ; sprinkle with lard. With fingers or pastry blender, cut in lard until mixture is crumbly with some pea-size pieces. Make well in centre; pour in water. With fork, stir water into dry ingredients just until soft ragged dough forms.

Turn out onto floured surface. With lightly floured hands, knead gently to bring dough together. Pat out to 3/4-inch (2 cm) thickness. Using 2-1/4-inch (5.5 cm) round cutter, cut out circles, kneading and cutting any scraps. Place on parchment paper–lined or ungreased baking sheet. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until golden, about 15 minutes. Serve hot or let cool on rack.
