      These biscuits were easy to make. We enjoyed them with our meal. They were tender and flakey but needed more salt. We also found them just a little dry.

      I have made these biscuits more than three times and they are good. I prefer shortening over the butter recipes. Soft, tender, and fluffy if you ask me. Best with buttermilk, but also good with plain milk.

      These were okay. My first batch stayed almost flat so I made another batch just to make sure I did everything right and they did get a little bigger but still stayed much flatter than the picture. They did have a great taste though!
