STOP SEARCHING AND TRY THIS RECIPE!!!!I know this sounds like every other review but this IS THE BEST BISCUIT RECIPE. I have tried soooo many others. These come out fluffy, moist, and very flavorful! I did what a few others recommended and mixed the dry ingredients first, then the fats, then the milk in a food processor, keeping the ingredients super cold and let the dough rest over night wrapped in cling wrap. I used 3 tbsp of chilled shortening and 3 tbsp of chilled butter. The dough was sticky but I think that is what it supposed to be like. When it is chilled overnight it is less sticky and you can cut the biscuits out easier. I didn't roll it out. I patted it out with my hands carefully and dusted off the excess flour I used to keep it from sticking to the board or cutter. Handle the dough as little as possible for the best results. Do not omit the sugar as other did. I don't care for sweets, but these need the sugar to balance the flavors out. If you have ever had overly salty or baking-soda-tasting biscuits it is because you need the sugar. They are not sweet at all like a scone, just very balanced. I also brushed the tops with a little milk to give them a nice sheen. Oh yeah ... I used King Arthur Unbleached All-purpose flour. It does make a difference in the final result. Much lighter!
