Ingredients
  1. 2½ cups self-rising flour
  2. 1 tablespoon sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  4. ½ cup cold bacon drippings
  5. 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
  6. 1 cup shredded sharp yellow Cheddar cheese
  7. ½ cup crumbled cooked bacon
  8. ¾ cup cold whole buttermilk
  9. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and pepper. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in bacon drippings and cold butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in cheese, cooked bacon, and buttermilk just until combined.
  3. Turn out dough onto a heavily floured surface. Fold dough in half until it comes together, 3 to 4 times. Pat or roll dough to a 1-inch thick rectangle. Using a knife dipped in flour, cut dough into 2-inch rectangles.
  4. Place biscuits 2 inches apart 
on prepared pan. Freeze until cold, 
about 10 minutes. Brush with melted butter. Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes.
