Self Rising Biscuits

I think this is the first time I have attempted making biscuits from scratch.  Does that make me less of a Southern woman?  Every Southern woman can make biscuits, right?  Well apparently I have not mastered this art.

Of course I followed a Pioneer Woman recipe.  She’s not Southern, yet hers look perfect in the photo. What’s up with that?

Here’s the link to the recipe:

I guess my issue with them is more related to appearance than taste. They were delicious but flatter than I had expected according to the picture on the recipe.  My suspicion is the self-rising flour I used may not have been the freshest or when the recipe called for shortening or butter, I should have used butter.  

This recipe is definitely worth another try. Fresh flour and butter it is! Give it a shot. Let me know what you think.
