I chose this recipe because it does not use shortening, and I was pleasantly surprised by the result. They came out as slightly sweet, fluffy biscuits with just a hint of coconut and almond flavor.
I did not roll out the dough, but cut in the oil using my food processor, then put the mix into a large bowl and quickly worked in the milk with a spoon. Then I made patties by hand, just gently patting the dough into shape - worked very well and was quick.
I also made a second batch (at the same time), using half coconut oil and half lard (from cooking bacon), and added some onions and bacon bits (I cooked cut-up bacon and onion in a pan before adding). And I did not have any more almond milk, so I used buttermilk instead, about 2/3 cup. They came out great, too, but I think the bacon flavor does not harmonize so well with the coconut flavor, although everybody in my family still loved them. The "original" batch was a nicer, more rounded flavor overall, and if you add bacon, leave out the sugar.
