So far, I've tried six different recipes, four from this site, and this is the best home made biscuit recipe I've come across! This one is simple, requires no sifting, and comes out with scrumptous biscuits that do great in the oven even after they've been frozen. I replaced the shortening with lighly salted butter, but otherwise I followed the recipe. I know I lack experience in the hand forming technique and I'm sure I kneaded them more then the recipe called for (I like to use up all my leftover flour or scraps into the dough which requires more kneading), but they still turned out wonderfully! They're done when you get a lightly golden hue on the tops, about 10 min in my oven. A light flakey crust on top, and soft on the inside. To freeze, I simply put the individual uncooked biscuits in a freezer safe container or freezer ziplock with some syran wrap so they don't stick together, took them out when I needed them, allowed them to come to room temp (really important), put them on a baking pan with non stick spray, and cooked like normal in the oven according to recipe. When I make this again, I might try cutting the butter back to 1/3 c and see what that does to the recipe.
