How to make it

- Spray a 8 or 9 inch round cake pan with cooking sparay ( I used a square cake pan )
- Mix together flour and salt into a bowl.
- Work shortening in with finger tips quickly until no large lumps.
- Gently stir in cream; then some buttermilk ( enough as needed ) to produce a COTTAGE CHEESE CONSISTENCY, a wet mass but no soupy.
- Spread all purpse flour out in a pie plate.
- With a medium ice cream scoop, scoop mixture 3 or 4 scoops at a time on flour.
- Using your hands coat dough with flour, gently form into a ball, shaking off excess flour as you work.
- Place biscuits into prepared pan, scrunching each biscuit up against its neighbor so biscuits wont spread out but they will rise up.
- Bake 20 to 25 minutes center oven rack till lightly browned.
- Brush with the melted butter.
- Invert onto plate and reinvert on another plate again so biscuits are upright.
- Quickly cut with a sharp knife to separate them.
- Serve with Cherry Chamboard butter
- Just mix all butter ingredients ( except preserves ) in food processor
- then stir in preserve by hand
- keeps well for a few weeks, covered in the refrigerator

Made biscuits this morning, using butter instead of shortning. Used milk, instead of cream but I was so happy I didn't resort to a frozen biscuit for a change and it was really easy to put together. The chamboard butter sounds sublime. very nice p...morenotyourmomma in South St. Petersburg loved it
