I attempted this
recipe from "lonelysound" for making biscuits, & they didnt rise. I was careful not to overmix, but I did use kosher salt instead of table salt. I used vegetable shortning. Furthermore, I used Silk soymilk for the "milk". Do you think that either of these contributed to my problem? The biscuits were yummy anyway -- flat, but very flaky & great. It'd just like fluffly ones, too.
