Wonderfully flaky, tender and richly flavored biscuits! I've been trying to find a good biscuit recipe that didn't call for shortening, as did my old favorite recipe, because I'm now living in Finland where crisco, sadly, does not exist. I'm no longer lamenting my misfortunes, though, as I found this excellent recipe that yields a biscuit that is comparable in flakiness to a shortening biscuit, but it's taste is way more flavorful and buttery. I will be using this recipe from now on and am so happy to have found something to bake that sure does remind of being back home. I will note that I didn't use cream of tartar, simply because there isn't any available here, but the biscuits still turned out tasty and fluffy... I could only imagine that they would be even fluffier with the cream of tartar, though. So, if you're worried about not having any tartar, don't sweat it. The baking powder works just fine.
