    Great recipe - I love good biscuits and to get them just right I've always used shortning. I'll look forward to trying these. = )

    As ever - I love the way you think. Without the shortening biscuits suddenly become very appealing to me. If you provide the recipe then I know they will be great.
    The jelly, too, sounds divine.
