    Do yourself a favor and SKIP this recipe. The outcome did not produce a good shortcake nor a good biscuit. Ultimately it was on the salty side and for a shortcake it should be sweet. This recipe needs some major tweaking...also the shortcakes were on the dry side and tasted way too much like butter. So eventhough it looks tempting to try b/c it seems like an easy recipe, the disasterous outcome is not worth the effort, your effort.
