Top Review by dogsandwoods

07/04/09: I subbed 1/4 c canola oil for the 1/2 c shortening and these turned out great! This batch only needed to bake ten minutes. The dough was very sticky prior to rolling, but a generous amount of flour made it work out perfectly. Thank you for a keeper! 07/05/09: Since mmy hens lay large eggs, today I used only 1/2 cup of milk. The dough was perfect! These popover type biscuits are just wonderful and oh, so easy.
