  This month's recipe is from the Reading Lines


Diamond Cheese Biscuits


lb. lard, softened                   2 Tbsp. baking powder
lb. butter, softened                lb. American cheese grated
8 cups sifted flour                     2 cups milk
1 Tbsp. salt                                yolk of 1 egg
2 Tbsp. sugar                             1 Tbsp. light cream into flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large mixing bowl, use a pastry cutter to work lard and butter until coarse. Add salt, sugar, baking powder, and grated cheese and mix all thoroughly. Slowly add milk, stirring until mixture is of biscuit-dough consistency. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out inch thickness. Use a sharp knife to cut dough into 2 X 3 diamond shapes. Place biscuits on ungreased baking sheet. Make an egg wash by beating egg yolk and cream together lightly. Brush wash atop biscuits and bake until lightly browned, about 25 minutes.
