"I hate clean up after using lard or solid shortening. I also hate trying to roll out sticky dough. It sticks to hands, rolling pin, board, etc. More flour must be added, making another mess.
This recipe avoids that by using canola oil as a shortening. The dough is not sticky. It's easy to handle. I don't even use a rolling pin. I press it flat by hand. I never seem to have buttermilk on hand. This recipe uses milk and vinegar as a substitute. I always have those in stock.
Even with those shortcuts this recipe makes flaky delicious biscuits. Give it a try."
