2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons lard
3/4 cup buttermilk


Sift the dry ingredients in a large bowl and cut in the lard with a pastry cutter or with two knives until a coarse meal texture is obtained. Add buttermilk and knead lightly but thoroughly. The dough should be soft but not sticky: if it is, add a little more flour. Knead for 1 minute, wrap in foil or wax paper and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Roll out the dough 1/2 inch thick on a lightly floured surface and cut with a biscuit cutter. (If you don't have one, a drinking glass of the desired diameter will work okay.) Transfer biscuits to a dark baking sheet and bake until golden brown, 10-12 minutes.

These are ok but not like KFC. The texture is close but they don't have the same flavor.

wish I read other review first, way too salty, think a teaspoon is just TOO much salt. Biscuits tasted great, just too salty. I will make again, with way less salt.

My family really enjoyed these biscuits. In fact, they thought they were better than the ones from our local KFC.

The only thing I did differently was use "yellow" Crisco instead of the lard, but I used the same amount as indicated in the recipe.

Have made them several times at this point and everyone always loves them. They are now part of our recipe collection.

was very much looking forward on how this was going to turn out. initially i was going to omit the salt from the recipe but was unsure how it would turn out so left it in. the time in the recipe seemed fine but the biscuits still seemed "doughy". they (the biscuits) did brown beautifully on the real test. should have gone w/my gut. even though i measured everything correctly it seemed that the salt stood out too much and didn't taste like biscuits at all but more like salty baked flour!! i was quite disappointed w/ this recipe.
