    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.

    I have a similar recipe from when I was growing up called Sky High biscuits that uses WWF. But I wanted to use milk and shortening (thank goodness for the ingredient filter!). I made these for a dinner last night, went like hotcakes! Almost like the KFC biscuit I had earlier (which had got me in the biscuit mood). I would omit the butter on top, wasn't really needed. But SO good, going to be my staple!

    these are so good and so easy to make. i had a little grainyness in the texture but that wass probably because i didn't sift the drey ingredients. will do next time. they rose perfectly and were so flaky.

Hi Everybody! Thanks for stopping by in my little niche of the mighty Zaar world. Here is a quick link to the beauty recipes I've posted (highest rated so far):http://www.recipezaar.com/r/chef=6357/253/451/18/ls=h A few things I've done:- 1. Worked part time as a Telemarketer in Oman in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. 2. Worked as a Certified Professional Tarotist (Tarot Card Reader) and done accurate predicitions for many people from different parts of the world, most memorable of which is the reading I did for my college Law lecturer and it came true. 3. Written nearly 1000 poems several of which have been published in leading newspapers, ezines and magazines both in Oman and India. 4. Worked as a Moderator on www.allpoetry.com - my BEST and FAVOURITE site on the internet. My other interests include: Numerology, Vaastu Shastra, Feng Shui, Face Reading, Reiki and Astrology! I am really very keen on getting well-versed with metaphysical sciences such as Astrology, I-Ching, Feng Shui, Runes, Enneagram, Kabbalah and many more. I love researching on the mythology of ancient Goddesses and then condensing my research into poems. In the mood to gift me something? Here's what I'd love - A Nissan 350Z {my dream car}
