TAMMY ALGOOD / TENNESSEE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup lard or vegetable
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly
grease a cast iron biscuit baker or baking sheet and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the
flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in
the lard until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the juice just until
the mixture is moistened.
Transfer the dough to a lightly
floured surface and knead 5 times. Roll to 1/2-inch thickness and cut with a
2-inch cutter. Place on the prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes or until golden
brown. Serve warm.
