Potato Biscuits

Potato Biscuits

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tb baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 4 Tb lard cut into cubes and frozen about 30 minutes (or collect bacon drippings and freeze them (obviously this will change the flavor) or use butter)
     
  • 1 ½ cups riced potatoes (push mashed potatoes through a colander)
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • About ¾ c buttermilk (it will depend on how moist your potatoes are)

Preheat oven to 450-F

In a food processor, pulse dry ingredients plus butter until incorporated, then pour into a large bowl. Stir in potatoes, being sure they’re evenly distributed with the flour. Now, stir in egg plus enough buttermilk to have a very sticky dough.

Drop large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet, bake biscuits about 8 minutes, until they’re turning golden brown on top. Serve with stew.
