Hi, my name is April. I live in the South and grew up on biscuits and gravy but have never made my own biscuits. Really.
This TWD selection gave me the push I needed to make my own biscuits. This was not a hard recipe, I was ready to commit murder early on though because my crappy can opener wouldn't work and I ended up flinging some of my sweet potatoes across the kitchen while banging the can on the counter in frustration.
I used the trick someone suggested in the P&Q for using a tea towel to roll out the biscuit dough. I floured the towel and my rolling pin well and it all worked like a charm. However, guess who doesn't have a biscuit cutter? Instead I used various cookie cutters, including a mushroom, a heart and the United States (found and purchased over at Bake It Pretty). The first batch cooked a little too long but the next batch was better and the first batch was fluffier (the first 'roll' of dough). The end result was a good little biscuit, a little flatter than I would have liked but still good.
Thanks to Erin of Prudence Pennywise for the biscuit selection!
