Homemade Biscuits from Scratch
How to Make Homemade Biscuits from Scratch
- Lay a piece of wax paper on the counter and place some flour on it so that you can cover your dough with flour. You should be able to feel the light, soft texture of the dough after you cover it in flour. Pat out or roll and then cut in to circles or you can pinch off and make bisquits that way. I don't like flat bisquits so my dough before cutting or pinching is about 1 inch high. Place your bisquits on a greased baking sheet and bake 350 degrees until brown on top.
- I'm so used to making these bisquits that you may have to adjust some of the measurements because I just know that my mother always told me that the dough once mixed up did not need to be stiff. So I know once I transfer it to a floured wax paper and cover it with more flour the feel that I'm so used to having. She would always make an extra small pan and let them set out all night and call them sour dough bisquits to bake the next morning. My father loved those but I never make enough to do that.
