Deliver Ingredients


  • 7 Cups cake flour, plus more if needed
  • 3 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 Cups lard
  • 3 Cups cold buttermilk
  • Melted butter, for pan
  • Fleur de sel, for tops of biscuits


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Sift all of the dry ingredients together and cut into the lard. Add the cold buttermilk and mix well with a wooden spoon.

Turn the mixture out onto a table or board and gently bring together. Have additional cake flour nearby as the dough is very wet and you might need some additional flour. Roll out and tri-fold the dough three times and roll out. Cut the dough with a square cutter and bake on half sheet trays lined with aluminum foil (shiny side up) that has been brushed with butter.

Add more melted butter on top of the biscuits and sprinkle with fleur de sel. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes.

Buttermilk Shopping Tip

Buttermilk Cooking Tip

Southern and comfort food is often rich and heavy, be sure to include lots of greens and vegetables with these dishes.
