Biscuit Making Tips To Make Sure You Make Perfect Biscuits
If you'll follow these biscuit tips you'll be able to make some of the best biscuits in the world. Not following these tips is why some people's biscuits don't turn out as good as they should. So read on and you will also be making great biscuits.
One thing a lot of people miss is that your oven should be pre-heated and at the temperature called for in the recipe before you put your pan of biscuits in the oven. Never put your pan of biscuits in a cold oven and then try to cook your biscuits. It won't work.
If your going to be doing a lot of baking especially biscuits and cakes your oven needs a heavy duty oven thermometer in the oven hanging from one of the oven racks. Check your ovens dial against the thermometer. Many home ovens can be off by 30 - 50 degrees so yes you do need a thermometer in the oven and you need to check it often and adjust the dial to get the temperature you need.
Be sure to measure your ingredients carefully. This is why you need measuring cups and measuring spoons so you can be sure to get the exact measurements you need.
Be sure that any baking soda or baking powder you use is fresh and still active. If its been in the kitchen cabinet for months you need to replace it.
If you'll make sure to do the above things you will in time be able to come up with biscuits that you can be proud of.

My Grandmother Hattie Propst and her daughter my mother Virginia Walker were both blue ribbon biscuit cooks.

Baking Powder Biscuits Recipe
Here is the recipe that a lot of men remember Mom making way back when. I have taken this recipe and changed it around to the point where I think anyone can reproduce the same great biscuits I did with this recipe.
Your Ingredients You Will Need For This Baking Powder Biscuits Recipe Are
1. 2 Cups of Sifted Plain All Purpose Flour
2. 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
3. 4 Tablespoons Real Butter at Room Tempurture
4. 1 Teaspoon Table Salt
5. 3/4 Cup of Whole Milk
You want to sift your flour with a hand sifter once into a bowl. And then add your baking powder and salt to the flour and sift again. Use your hands to cut your butter into the flour. Be sure that the butter is very well mixed into the flour. Add your milk gradually until soft dough is formed. Turn your dough out onto a floured surface and roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thick. Cut your biscuits out with a 2 inch floured biscuit cutter or a small glass.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and make sure it is thoroughly preheated before you bake your biscuits for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Please be sure to not over work your dough. Try to basically follow along with my instructions and you will have great baking powder biscuits.
You can if you wish make those tiny tea biscuits with a 1- 3 inch biscuit cutter and fill them with country ham for a party or special event. They are also wonderful served with honey, butter, and jam or jelly.
Country Ham Biscuits
I love country ham stuffed biscuits. You'll never know how good they are until you make them and give them a try. Always wash your country ham very well under cold running water before you fry it to get rid of the extra salt. Then fry your country ham golden brown and stuff it in a homemade biscuit. I promise you those country ham biscuits will be some of the most delicious ever.
Sausage Gravy Biscuits

You need to learn how to make this delicious treat and I'll just bet that your family and friends will thank you for making delicious homemade sausage biscuits. They are so very good. So good.

Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe
The below recipe makes really great biscuits that everyone who tastes them is sure to love. Don't leave anything out and if at all possible use Dukes Mayonnaise in your biscuits as it gives the best flavor.
1. 2 Cups Of Self Rising Flour
2. 2 Tablespoons Of Dukes Mayonaise
3. 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
4. 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
5. 1 Cup Of Buttermilk
6. 1 Teaspoon of Sugar
Mix all your ingredients together well and turn your dough out onto a floured surface. Use a rolling pin and roll your dough out to 1/2 inch thick. Cut your biscuits out with a 2 inch biscuit cutter and place onto your baking pan or sheet. Bake your biscuits in a preheated 425 degree oven and be sure your oven is preheated before you bake your biscuits to golden brown.
I guarantee you that you have just created the easiest and most delicious buttermilk biscuits you will ever taste. Again if at all possible use Dukes Mayonnaise in your biscuit recipe.
And anytime you make biscuits remember you are better off to under work your biscuits than you are to over work them.
Anytime you are told in a recipe to preheat your oven always make sure that your oven is fully preheated before you place biscuits in an oven to cook them.

R Hall on March 06, 2012:
Well, good buscuits. Made them twice now, just made them with my son. I love the plain biscuits. Anything else in a biscuit just ruins it for me!
Katie on December 31, 2011:
!!!!!!!!!!!THEY TURNED OUT AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
Margaret on December 04, 2011:
I always use your baking powder biscuit recipe. :) Although, I do substitute milk with heavy cream. They always turn out amazing!
Lynn on December 02, 2011:
The biscuits were o.k. Thet didn't rise very much but were good tasting.
Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on November 24, 2011:
You always want to purchase fresh baking powder or baking soda. I have made this mistake myself many times.
vivi on November 24, 2011:
I tried this recipe, but they didn't rise. My baking powder is expired, i used pastry flour and used 2/3 2% milk and 1/3 heavy cream (didn't have whole milk). I really thought it would work. :(
Thomas Byers (author) from East Coast , United States on November 13, 2011:
Dukes is my favorite but you can use any mayonnaise.
BC on November 13, 2011:
I am from Canada...and I want to try the buttermilk recipe, but we do not have Duke's Mayonnaise available here. Can I substitute something?? Regular mayo??
odiekarone on October 27, 2011:
I make a garlic-cheese type biscuit that my kids love. You just make biscuits using self-rising flour, shortening, and about a big tablespoon of garlic. I use the kind in the little glass jar at the store. After cutting the shortening into the flour, add the garlic and enough evaporated milk to make the mixture soft, but not "wet". Then I hand knead and roll the biscuits into a ball and flatten them out, dip them into a bowl with melted real butter on both sides, then dip them into a separate bowl containing Parmesan cheese until fully coated on both sides. Then I put them on a baking sheet in a pre-heated (400*) oven and bake until golden brown. Usually takes about 20 minutes. YUMMY!! :) **Warning** They CAN be addicting!! LOL!!

imatellmuva from Somewhere in Baltimore on March 02, 2011:
okay crazyhorsesghost....I'm back, and still making biscuits. I did the cheddar cheese again, but added buttermilk this time...whoooo chile'! Thank you so much for sharing these recipes. I'm not much of a recipe person, a good cook though. It's just that my Mother and Grandmother cooked and baked without recipes, or measurements...they could eyeball everything, and meals, and baked goods always came out perfect.
kumar on February 24, 2011:
I really liked the recipes. Also i want to start my own biscuit company in india, if so would you be able to share your knowledge to me. I need to varieties of biscuit recipes since i am initially planning to start a medium scale industry with a selling outlet.
Hoping to hear from you soon positively.
imatellmuva from Somewhere in Baltimore on January 24, 2011:
I made the cheddar Cheese biscuits yesterday, and they were awesome. The batch yielded 15 small biscuits, and I have only (2) left. I'm making more tomorrow. I did add just a dash of garlic powder to the mix though...I love garlic. Thanks for the recipe. I will continue to make biscuits this way for years to come.
imatellmuva from Somewhere in Baltimore on January 10, 2011:

Nonie on October 22, 2010:
Your biscuits look lovely and I will try some of them ,but, the best biscuits I ever made,and I have tried lots in my 74 yrs, were from the recipe on the old Blue Ribbon Baking Powder Can, would you happen to have that recipe and if you have could you post that one too ?
GM on September 10, 2010:
Hi. Thanks for the recipes! I have been making the cheddar biscuits for years, and they are awesome; very similar to Red Lobster's biscuits. If you don't overwork the dough they will melt in your mouth!
Witty misnomer on August 31, 2010:
I just made your buttermilk biscuit recipe this morning, and I'm happy to report it came out wonderfully!
With some scratch-made sausage gravy poured over top, these biscuits made a tasty meal. I added some orange marmalade to a couple for dessert - yum! Thank you for the recipe!
