    Helpful hint...

    Cut biscuits with a pizza cutter into squares, rather than rounds. When you cut rounds, you'll have leftover dough that you re-work and re-cut. These are called second-cuts. Second cuts tend to be tough because you over-work the gluten in the dough. To avoid this and save time and effort, cut all the dough with a pizza cutter ONCE.

    I love that hint, Grainlady, and I'm annoyed with myself that it never occurred to me before!

    These are awesome! I melted a little bacon grease on my baking sheet and got the sheet nice and hot and then put the biscuits on. It almost kind of fried the bottom a little bit. Man were they good, they rose perfectly, and held up to gravy in the end. I used buttermilk and half butter half shortening. I have this really good expeller pressed non hydrogenated shortening that I use. I changed it up a bit but they are good as is to.

    I use my food processor to get a good crumbly mixture of the dry ingredients; then blend liquids by hand. This doesn't hurt the texture of the finished biscuit.
