Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with vegetable oil spray. Mix flour and lard together in a large bowl with a pastry blender (or fork) until the fat is worked in and the mixture is a coarse crumb consistency.
Add sugar and stir in milk to make a soft dough. Let rest for a few minutes. Drop using a small ice cream scoop onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Serve immediately with soft salted butter.
