Cracklin' Biscuits

4 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup unsalted butter
2 tbsps baking powder
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup chopped hog cracklin's
1 1/2 tbsps sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp salt


Preheat dutch oven to 400 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt. Mix well to ensure proper blending. Using a pastry blender, cut 2/3 cup of butter into flour mixture. Once butter has been well blended into flour, add buttermilk and chopped cracklin's. Continue to mix until biscuit dough is well formed. Place dough on a floured board and knead lightly. Roll dough out until approximately 3/4-inch thick. Cut biscuits with a 3-inch biscuit cutter until all are formed. Place biscuits in a greased 12-inch dutch oven and drizzle with remaining melted butter. Bake until golden brown, approximately 25 minutes.
