"My husband and I really enjoyed these delicious biscuits! I substituted real butter instead of shortening and sour milk for the buttermilk.."

"Nice, easy biscuits that came out fluffy and moist with a delicate chive flavor. Really yummy! I didn't do the butter flavored Crisco, but used regular, and they were very nice still!"
