GUEST,Kentucky Pat BS: Country Ham (57* d) RE: BS: Country Ham 27 Dec 01

Country ham is usually accompanied by Southern Beaten Biscuits. Our original family recipe called for beating the dough 1000 licks with an axe handle. The updated recipe follows: 2 cups all-purpose flour, pinch of salt, sugar and baking soda, 1/3 cup cold milk, 1/3 cup cold water. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put dry ingredients in bread machine. Add the lard and whirl a few seconds until the dough looks mealy. With the machine running, add milk and water. Let the mixture go through the first kneading cycle. Then immediately reset the machine for another "first" kneading. The dough will look shiny when the machine has run long enough. Roll dough out on floured board.Make it 1/4" thick. Cut out biscuits with a whiskey jigger. Use a fork to make a cross in each biscuit. Place biscuits 1/2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes at 350 until risen, then increase heat to 400 degress and bake biscuits for another 10-15 minutes, until biscuit tops are slightly browned. (Biscuits can be frozen for up to 6 months and warmed back up with just 1 minute in a microwave.)
