Tips for Biscuit Making Success
- Keep in mind that fresh dough is sticky by nature. That said, it's important to flour the rolling pin, biscuit cutter and rolling surface lightly to prevent sticking.
- For these biscuits, I cut them into 5-inch rounds as that's the largest cookie cutter that I had handy. Then gently rolled each round with the rolling pin until they're around 6 inches so their sizeable for stuffing.
- After filling and sealing the biscuit dough, use your hands to shape them into even sized rounds, and place seam side down in the buttered skillet.
- When you bake biscuits side by side in the skillet in this way, the tops become golden and crispy and the inside stays fluffy and light.
- These biscuits reheat nicely, making them perfect for weekend brunch or any day you want to serve breakfast with a surprise inside.
