Step 1: Step 1: Add Flour
Add 5 Cups of flour.
It's Better to weigh out your flour if you have a Scale. If you use Measureing cups use 2. Use a 1 Cup measureing cup and a 1/4 Cup measureing cup. Scoop out the flour with the 1/4 cup and pour into the 1 Cup. This introduces Air into the flor, Flour can be compacted if just scooped up which leads to MORE Flour then 1 Cup.
I'm uncertain of the weight of flour, if I recall though, I think its 4.5 oz for 1 cup, just times that by 5 and you got your 5 cups of Flour by Weight.
Step 2: Step 2: Adding Baking Powder
Add 1/4 Cup of Baking Powder
Sorry, I don't have many small containers, so I add everything to the Food processor, makes cleanup easier. In the photo if you can see it, On the bottom of the food processor is the 1/4 Cup of Baking Powder
Step 3: Step 3: Adding the Salt
Add 1 tableshoop of salt.
Salt is on the bottom left of the Baking powder.
Step 4: Step 4: Adding Sugar
Add 1 tablespoon of Sugar.
Sugar is to the right of the baking powder.
It don't matter where it's Placed LOL As long as it's in there.
Step 5: Step 5: Adding Lard
Add 1 Cup of Crisco Lard.
You can add Butter Flavored Lard or Regular Crisco Lard.
I choose Regular Crisco mainly because the butter flavor is to over powering to my liking. I can always add butter in if I need it but I can't take it out once it's in there.
So remember, it's easier to always add, but not easy to take away. I belive in NOT Wasting anything if we can help it, so if you aren't sure don't add it, or even add 1/2 and 1/2 if you like. Regular and Butter Flavored it will cut down on the butter flavor.
Step 6: Step 6: Mixing
Put your Food processor lid on and start pulsating the food processor until you get crumb texture, this lets you know that the Lard has been incorperated well enough.
You MIGHT have to Scrape the content off the bottom of the food processor bowl because it will pack it's self under the blade. And mix a little more. When pouring out into another air tight container, you will notice that there will be a hard puck of biscuit mix on the bottom, just take a butter knife or rubber spatula and scrap it off. Then break it up in smaller pieces by rubbing between finger and thumb.
I hope that you give this recipe a try and I hope you like.
