    Can I substitute butter for shortening and if so is it the same amount?

    Perfect EaeEast, just perfect. I made 1/2 the recipe and got 5 large biscuits. They were crisp and tender. The butter just sent them over the top. Made just the way I like them, thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

    These were very good! I ended up with 13 biscuits instead of 15, but it's not a big deal. Next time (there will definitely be a next time!) I'll try making these with cold butter instead of shortening.
