How To Make Perfect Biscuits - Biscuit Making Tips

Biscuit Making Tips

Biscuits will be crisp on the outside and flaky in the center if you roll the dough thin and fold it over once before cutting out biscuits. They'll also split open easily when you're ready to butter them.

To re-freshen and heat biscuits, put them in a well-dampened paper bag, twist it closed and put in a 300ยบ oven for several minutes or until warm.

If you want soft-sided biscuits, bake them in a pan with sides and put the biscuits close together.

If you want crusty biscuits, bake them on a cookie sheet and place them apart from each other.

To prevent them from sticking to your baking pan you can lightly spray it with nonstick cooking spray or grease lightly with some softened butter.

When baking them always keep a close eye on them. They can burn easily and get too hard. Set a timer and check on them 2 or 3 minutes before the recommended baking time is up. Then check on them at one minute intervals until done.

When using refrigerated dough...always allow it to sit out at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes before starting your recipes. It is easier to work with once it reaches room temperature.
