I had high hopes for these biscuits (literally). I was looking for flakey, cute towers. These turned out to be a nice, classic biscuit height and the flavor was lovely, but they didn't quite grow as prolifically as I had hoped.
I'm wondering if it could have been that I replaced shortening with butter or if cooking them in a cast iron would help.
I'm going to fool around with the recipe more and see if I can get the results I was envisioning, but until then, give these a try. They are scrumptious.
