Preheat oven to 450°F and place a large baking sheet in the oven.
In a small bowl, whisk together oat milk and yogurt. Place in fridge to chill. Combine flour, sea salt, baking powder, baking soda and sugar in a food processor. Pulse a few times to fluff up the mixture. Add cheese, garlic, chives and dill, if using. Pulse a few more times to incorporate.
Roughly chop shortening and Country Crock Plant Butter and add to food processor. Pulse ingredients until pieces of butter and shortening are pea-sized. Do not pulse too much! Transfer mixture to a bowl.
Create a well in the dough and add chilled oat milk and yogurt mixture. Using a large fork, gently incorporate the dry into the wet. If there are any large chunks, use the fork to break them up.
Transfer dough to a flour-dusted surface. Press with your hands a couple of times to combine the dough and further incorporate. Pat into a 2-inch thick square.
Using a sharp and flour-dusted knife, cut dough into 4 pieces. Stack pieces on top of one another, press down to flatten. Pat dough into a 2-inch thick square. Repeat this step. Using the floured-knife, trim a thin border around sides of dough to create clean edges. Cut into 9 biscuits.
Carefully, remove the heated pan out of the oven and line with parchment paper. Transfer the biscuits to the pan, leaving a few inches of space in between. Brush the tops with melted butter and bake for 25 minutes, until golden brown

You want to use a soft winter wheat flour like White Lily for these as this will result in the best texture. Second best, you could also use all-purpose flour if that's all you have access to. I recommend King Arthur.
These biscuits freeze beautifully! I can't tell you what a treat it is for house guests to pull out a few frozen biscuits to bake off in the morning. They will be not only impressed but very happy. Unless they are gluten-free which means they would already be cranky because they can't eat bread.
