Very nice recipe if you're looking for something quick with the ingredients that you have in your kitchen. It requires little preparation and is done quickly. I thought the prep time was highly exaggerated, and would have said 10 minutes myself. Cook time was exactly 14 minutes for me. Would be longer if you used a larger cutter for the biscuits, which I would recommend and will be doing myself next time. I substituted unsalted stuck butter for the shortening. I did not over-kneed the dough, which would make them hard. I placed the biscuits touching on the sheet. Would suggest erring on the side of thick when rolling out dough. Yields a nice, fat biscuit. Nice no-frills recipe that reminds me of the simple old school Betty Crocker recipe, only a higher biscuit, which is nice. OH! Forgot to mention, add the milk slowly and stop when you have enough. I used a little under my one cup of milk.
