Properly made shortening biscuits are soft and crumbly, with a slightly more cake-like crumb than butter biscuits.

How do you moisten dry biscuits?
If you want added moisture, you can brush melted butter or olive oil on the biscuits before wrapping them in foil. Turn the heat to low and cover the pan if you have a lid (this helps retain moisture). Heat for one to two minutes. Flip the biscuits around the 30-second mark to heat the other side.
Why are my biscuits so dense?
Adding too little fat or using an expired rising agent are some of the most common culprits for dense biscuits. You should also follow directions precisely, as overworking the dough or lowering the oven temperature too much can also affect your rise.
How do you make biscuits rise higher?
Place your cut biscuits on a parchment-lined baking pan to avoid sticking. When you set the biscuits on the baking sheet, make sure the sides are touching. As they bake, they will cling to each other, rising bigger and taller. A hot oven helps biscuits bake—and rise—quickly.
Why do homemade biscuits fall apart?
When the fat is cut too small, after baking there will be more, smaller air pockets left by the melting fat. The result is a baked product that crumbles. When cutting in shortening and other solid fats, cut only until the pieces of shortening are 1/8- to 1/4-inch in size. Learn more about Fats in Baking.
