Wow, so many things went wrong, and they were still a success. I didn't have enough butter, so I supplemented with the last little bit of shortening I had and a little spreadable margarine. Had to estimate the amounts because I'm in Ireland, and butter here doesn't come in sticks marked with tablespoon and cup measurements. I also estimated the buttermilk and didn't flour my hands properly when kneading so ended up a bit of a sticky mess. My biscuits did not rise really, but they were still light, fluffy, and the taste was lovely. This was my first time baking biscuits, but I've had loads of experience eating them, and I enjoyed these, as did my Irish boyfriend who accidentally sabotaged my first attempt by closing down this website so I couldn't refer to the recipe anymore. I forgave him. Hopefully my handling and my estimations will improve with experience.
