Beaten Biscuit

  • 2 quarts flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp sweet lard
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 pint milk
Mix all of the above ingredients together except for milk. Then add the milk. Beat with enthusiasm until the dough blisters and cracks. Pull off a two-inch square of the dough. Roll it into a ball with the hand. Flatten and stick with a fork. Bake in a quick oven at 400 degrees F.

It is not beating hard that makes the biscuit good but the regularity of the motion. Beating hard, the old cooks say, kills the dough.
