Southern Style Biscuits

I like to call these "half-wheat" because I use half whole wheat flour and half regular all-purpose flour.

-1 c. whole wheat flour
-1 c. all-purpose flour
-3/4 tsp. salt
-4 tsp. baking powder
-1/4 tsp baking soda
-2 T butter
-2 T lard or bacon grease
-1 c. milk + 1 T. lemon juice (or vinegar)

1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Add fats and cut in with a pastry cutter until small clumps remain.
2. Add liquid in swift strokes and turn dough onto a floured surface.  Fold dough over on itself 3-5 times and press until 1 inch thick.  Cut into desired shapes and cook in a 450 F oven until browned, about 13 minutes.
