Cat’s Head (Buttermilk) Biscuits

This recipe comes from a great friend of my mother’s, who comes from Georgia. You can roll and cookie cutter them, or you can just make big blobs of dough for baking. This was always the best biscuit recipe around our place. It’s most definitely the lard.

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 5 tablespoons lard
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Sift and mix dry ingredients then blend with lard. Add buttermilk. Pat out biscuits about the size of an egg and bake in a 350 degree (or up to 475 degree) oven for 10 minutes.
