These always turn out perfectly and my neighbor told me they are even better than her grandmothers - but I'm not supposed to tell anyone...
I should mention that I use salted butter instead of shortening. Once the dough is flattened out, I flour, fold and flatten - repeat twice more. This will give the biscuits the layers that make them light and wonderful. I used to think of this as over handling and thought it would make the biscuits hard, but not so.
oh - and one more thing. I don't use a biscuit cutter. I use a sharp knife to cut each one out. This keeps the edges of the dough from smooshing down and preventing them from rising.
