Light, fluffy, and flavorful. Very simple and quick to make. I don't think it would be possible to go wrong with them. I don't use hydrogenated fats so I successfully substituted Canola oil for the shortening. I also used 1/3 whole wheat flour because I tend to find items made only with white flour tasteless. 8 servings might be a little optimistic. I fed myself, 2 teens, and a toddler with these on top of some beef stew and I think 6 servings might be more realistic.
