Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until it is just smooth, about 30 seconds. Pat the dough into a rectangle, 1-inch thick. Cut the dough with a biscuit cutter into 3-inch rounds, or use a knife to cut it into 3-inch squares. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, 2 inches apart.

Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.

Before putting the biscuits in the oven, brush with a little melted Clarified Bacon Fat.
