Vintage Recipe American Maid Biscuit

American Maid Biscuit

1/2 Pint Flour
2 level Teaspoonsful Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoonful Salt
2 level Teaspoonsful Lard
[Milk also needed]

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together throughly, then work in the lard. Add milk sufficient to make a soft dough then turn in a floured board and work just enough to get the dough in shape. Roll or pat out and cut with a biscuit cutter. Bake in hot oven - 15 minutes will do.

Note: American Maid was a flour company during the early part of the 20th century. It was ran around Houston, Texas. Funny enough this recipe was on the inside of sheet music given by the American Maid flour company.
