I usually use the biscuit recipe in Joy of Cooking. I am open to any recipe but I don't want to use shortening or lard, just butter. I made biscuits the other night and they tasted yummy and were tender and flaky, but they were thin. I do use a biscuit cutter, and don't knead too much. I rolled the dough to 1/2" thick as per the recipe. Should I roll it less thin? Any advice? Thanks.
