Tips for Making Homemade Biscuits
One of the things that makes a biscuit so irresistible is the texture. Not only do they need to be light and fluffy, but they need to have generous layers. So how do you get that notorious texture? All you need to do is keep your ingredients cold and be careful not to work the dough too much. When biscuits go in the oven and start to bake, the butter begins to steam and create air pockets. This creates those desirable layers and flaky texture. If your ingredients aren't cold or if you overwork with the dough, the butter will already be soft and won't create as much steam. Here are more tips for making homemade biscuits:
- Let your butter, milk, and cheese sit in the fridge while you mix your dry ingredients.
- Work the butter into your dry ingredients with a pastry cutter or fork instead of using your hands.
- Use a wooden spoon or mixing spoon to combine the dough and only use your hands to knead at the end.
- After your dough is rolled and cut, place the biscuits on a sheet pan in the freezer for 5 minutes before baking.
