I followed some suggestions from others and my biscuits came out oh so yummy.
Instead of shortening, I used real butter. I also added some more baking powder.
My dad's side of the family is from the south. I was taught how to make biscuits, but I couldn't remember the recipe, so this was very helpful.
They don't actually 'measure' but eye things. Instead of milk, use butter milk. Also, don't roll the dough out at all. You form each biscuit using your own hands. Granny used her hands while mixing in the butter. I remember sitting at the table and watching her do that.
Form rough balls and gently flatten out the top. Put some oil (canola, veggie) in a spoon and pour a little over the top of each. I remember aunt Brenda using the bottom of the spoon to spread the oil over the top.
The cooking time and temp. were perfect! What a great recipe. Thanks! It was so very helpful, as well as comments from others.
