Hot from the oven, these will complement any soup or stew. Cut biscuits with heart-shaped cookie cutters for a special touch.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in lard. Add milk, stirring slowly to make a soft dough. Turn mixture out onto floured surface, knead lightly several times, and shape into a ball. Roll out to ¼- to ½-inch thickness. Cut with round or heart-shaped cookie cutters or the rim of a juice glass. Bake 10 to 15 minutes on ungreased baking sheet.
