Cathead Μπισκότα

Cathead Biscuits

Degree of difficulty


Preparation time

10 minutes

Cooking Time

18 minutes




  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chilled lard, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk, or as needed


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease two 12-inch cast iron skillets and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together. Add the lard and cut it in with a pastry cutter or rub it into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture is just crumbly. Gradually stir in just enough buttermilk to form a soft ball of dough.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface, knead about 8 times, then shape by hand into biscuits about 3 1/2 inches across and 1 inch high.
  4. Arrange the biscuits fairly close together in the prepared skillets and bake in the upper third of the oven until golden brown and craggy on the outsides, about 17 minutes.
