Basic Biscuits - from Paula Deen

“No waiting for rise with this recipe! This is the biscuit recipe she used for the Country Fried Steak & Gravy, which I posted separately. She, also, preferred to use lard instead of Crisco! Great tip in step 4 provided by unknown reviewer. (NOTE Granny T suggests you increase salt to 1 tsp)”
