My husband thought these were the best biscuits he'd ever eaten...and he is a huge bread fan. I did use butter instead of shorting and they turned out so good!

I've been making these biscuits for a couple of years now and wouldn't think of going back to canned! They are delicious and turn out light and fluffy every time. Last night I made them with the butter flavored shortening and let them sit a few minutes before baking and they rose even higher. My husband has only one "word" for these, mmmmmmmmm.
