buttermilk biscuits

2 c flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 450f. Sift together flour, 
baking soda, powder, and salt into a large bowl. 
Work in the lard with fingertips until the 
mixture is like coarse meal. Beat in the 
buttermilk until a stiff dough is formed.
Knead dough in bowl for 1 minute.
