Biscuits with these avail ingredients.

I'm plotting on chicken fried steak tomorrow (imagine that) and I think I'm going for my 2nd attempt on homemade biscuits. I really don't feel like going to the store and this is what I'm working with.

All purpose flour or self rising, I have both.
Butter, crisco, lard.
Milk... no buttermilk, no cream
Salt, sugar.
Baking powder

I'm pretty sure these are my biscuit related ingredients. Any ideas?

Baking Powder Biscuits


2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon salt
cup shortening
2/3 cup milk


Sift dry ingredients into bowl. Cut in shortening until like coarse crumbs. Make a well; add milk all at once. Stir quickly with fork, just until dough follows fork around bowl. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Dough should be soft. Knead gently 10-12 strokes. Roll or pat dough thick. Dip cutter in flour. Cut dough straight down no twisting. Bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 12-15 minutes at 450˚. Makes 15.

Since you have lard, I'd recommend you use it as shortening...it makes awfully good biscuits.

I have successfully soured milk with a teaspoon of lemon juice per 1/2 cup of milk and used that instead of buttermilk in recipes. Give that a go.
