Vegetarian & Vegan 16

I've been asked to teach a session on making southern style biscuits
for a group i belong to. About 1/2 of the group are vegan/vegit. and i would like to adapt usual ingredients and methods to work for my vegan friends.

I usually use White Lily unbleached flour mixed w/whole wheat pastry flour, baking soda, baking powder, thinned yogurt or buttermilk and butter or home-rendered lard. I do not use Crisco or any similar product. I have never tried coconut oil or other substitutes. I've never used almond, rice or soy milk. I use a small (7") cast iron skillet, well warmed but not hot, filled w/biscuits just touching and bake in a counter top oven pre-heated to 450 for 10 minutes then reduced to 375 till finished. I usually brush lightly w/butter.

I'd much appreciate the help from experienced vegan bakers who turn out great biscuits. I'll definitely give y'all the credit. many thanks
