Wow - these are so good. I screwed up and added 1/2 cup shortening to the mix instead of 1/4 cup (I'm bad about not reading the recipe all the way through before I start), but they were still super good. Next time though I will cut back to the 1/4 cup. I also used buttermilk, just cause I love buttermilk in biscuits and pancakes, etc. I also had a little trouble cooking the first few but finally got the hang of it and they turned out perfectly.
Thanks so much Chef shapeweaver for posting. I will definitely be making again and again.
