Louella's Buttermilk Biscuits

Submitted by: SAROGOWSKI

Introduction

This is a recipe from Jan Karon's recipe book, but I've halved the amount of shortening it calls for and I make the biscuits a little thinner than she recommends simply so I can have two without feeling guilty! :) I also spray the biscuits w/butter spray at the end instead of melted butter.
