PERFECT Shortcake Biscuits

PERFECT Shortcake Biscuits created by lilsweetie

These are delicious! I had written them down years ago and only tried them for the first time tonight. Light, deliciously 'cakey' and special for scrumptious summer shortcake. I hope you like it as much as I did!

    How is this still missing the oven temperature which is critical to a perfect biscuit? Edit this recipe or take it off your website.

    I would have given this recipe a higher rating, but it is missing the oven temperature. Based on others' comments, I baked mine at 325 for 12 minutes, and they turned out nicely. I might add another tablespoon of sugar to make them a touch sweeter. I also might use butter-flavored crisco next time for a bit more flavor.

    These rose high and fluffy. I thought they were a bit dry, which up to a point is nice, especially as I like to puree the berries, but I don't know that they were perfect. I don't know if 350 is the right temperature.
