6th time the charm... Biscuits.

The quest for the biscuit mastery continues...

Well, this is probably the 5th time I've made biscuits and I finally got the height right. when I rolled them out this time, I kept the dough thick... almost an inch. Previously I had been rolling out to about a 1/2 inch and that just made too many and too thin of biscuits.
This time they were the right height and thickness, but I think next time I'll use half buttermilk and half regular milk, I feel like all buttermilk makes them a little heavier than I'd like. I also used butter flavored shortening this time, which I won't do again. Tasty, but again, too rich. Next time, I'm hoping for perfection.
