Beaten Biscuits

American.Kitchen's picture
Beaten biscuits are homemade biscuits made with flour and milk. Sweetened with sugar and baked in the oven, these beaten biscuits are great when they come out nice and brown.
  Flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Lard 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Milk and water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), mixed
  Baking powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon

Sift dry ingredients together, then cut in lard until mixture appears mealy.
Add liquid, a little at a time, to make a stiff dough.
Knead thoroughly, then beat with a heavy mallet for half an hour or run several times through the coarse chopper of a meat grinder until dough is elastic.
Roll 1/2 inch thick and cut with small biscuit cutter.
Prick tops with fork tines and bake on a cooky sheet in a 325° oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until lightly browned.
