  2. This looks so yummy! I could go for some myself right about now, Carla. But I do have a question: shortening, does that mean butter?

  15. Jeepers! Those look great! I've been really hungry lately. Probably because I was warm for so many weeks and now I'm cold. Cold always makes me hungry. Your biscuits remind me of scones, and I can see trying cranberries in them in place of the raisins. Yum!
