Excellent Cheese Biscuits. Loved the flavor combination. They didn't rise as much as I thought they would, but I'm not the best Biscuit maker there ever was. I'm still working on it. I used cold butter for the 1/3 cup shortening but other than that made as written. thanks for sharing. Made for the Photo Forum Special. :)
