These biscuits are wonderful and so quick to make. I have made them several times and prepare the dough in the food processor. They always turn out light and fluffy. I substitute butter for the shortening, as I do not like shortening.

My husband raved over these biscuits. They were yummy and easy to make since I made them as drop biscuits.
