"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

You might as well use the double recipe because they will disappear fast. Vena notes that she likes to use Crisco or Margarine in place of the Lard, or use Butter Flavor Crisco. But everyone knows that real Lard makes an original Biscuit.
