First, you take her magical wooden bowl. Magic! I tell ya! Flour is sifted and into the bowl it goes. Next comes the secret ingredient: LARD! You can only still find it in big red vats at the Piggly Wiggly. Into this goes full fat buttermilk. "It has to be full fat," she's said many times. This mixture is gingerly mixed. "Too much and they will be tough!" The biscuits are rolled out on wax paper and then gingerly cut - gingerly cut by a tomato paste can with the ends cut off. This makes the perfect bite-size. All this goes into a 500 degree oven with loving hands - probably the most secret ingredient of all. The magical biscuits can then be eaten with cheese, preserves, jam, etc.
