Tips for making the Best Homemade Biscuits

  • Using cold butter creates a tall flakey biscuits. I place the butter in the freezer then grate it using a cheese grater.
  • Try not to over work your batter. This will result in a tougher biscuit.
  • If you don’t have a biscuit cutter use a glass thats a similar size and coat with flour.
