      the recipe I always use has no sugar, uses shortening and no butter and it calls for milk. It's very simple and everyone likes them. I like the idea of stacking the layers perhaps for layering, I'll give it a try :-)

    what a great video! the process of research and development of coming up with an incredible biscuit! I need an oven so badly so i can do this kind of thing. I love experimenting. But great job. The world does need better biscuits for sure. Once in a while Popeye's biscuits knocks it out of the park but they're not as consistent as they should be. Maybe it's more about the baker than the recipe. But biscuits always have to be eaten at the right temperature which is hard to achieve when you cook for others. What you learned and shared with the world is invaluable! Thank you so much. Very inspiring.

        Try 200g self raising Flour.. Approx 250ml whipping cream.. Both chilled.. A pinch of salt.. You can add a tablespoon of powdered sugar if you want them sweet.. Mix with fork.. Do the folding method very gently patting them out with your hands.. Gently roll the final time to 1 inch thickness.. Cut.. Chill bake at 400 .. About 10 to 12 mins.. Found this recipe online and never looked back

                          Those biscuit layers look wonderful, but I still like a round biscuit better. I'd do everything the same except when I cut the ROUND biscuits, I put them in a round pan, let them touch, so that when they rise in the oven while cooking then don't spread wide, but rather crawl up higher since they have no place else to go except up. And I'd reuse any scraps since I don't like to waste products, even if it's not perfect, it's worthy of consumption.

                            That "funky aftertaste" is from the buttermilk. I find that normal big-brand low-fat cultured buttermilk (Friendship, Garelick and the like) does this weird funky metallic thing in biscuits. A funky aftertaste indeed. The times that I found my biscuits _didn't_ have that taste was when I used, like, local full-fat one-ingredient buttermilk (Five Acre, if you're wondering) or buttermilk I made myself. It was a revelation when I figured it out! The buttermilk makes a big difference. Garelick has thickeners added...carrageenan, carob gum, and starch...and vitamin A, and SALT. Stuff tastes weird.

                            For reference I just use While Lily self-rising flour and Crisco. So the only real flavor-variable would be the buttermilk.

                              ...So if you think Crisco has a "funky aftertaste", you either A. know very little about Crisco, or 2. have been using absolutely rancid Crisco all your life because it sits unused in the cupboard.

                              Hmm. I'd say it's both.

                              Crisco is in every good biscuit. It has no flavor whatsoever. What in the hecking heck are you even talking about?

                                  As an old southern cook I can tell you where your problem lies. Put them in a pan with sides so they can touch all over. They need this to rise high. Also told three times only. The more you handle biscuit dough the tougher they will be.😍👍

                                    On a hot day in the south, we put the milk in the freezer while we gather the biscuit ingredients. We never put cut biscuits in the freezer before baking. Maybe in the fridge, while we clean the kitchen after making the dough. And dear Lord, don't twist your cutter, as so many have stated here. It made me cringe to watch that part! Straight down. If you want your biscuits to rise, just don't twist. It seals the edges so that they can't rise up.
                                    The less you handle that dough, the softer and more delectable your biscuits will turn out.
                                    I love that you are so honest in your attempts and are trying for that perfect mixture of taste and loveliness! So many just give up. Keep working at it!

                                        375 on the Middle rack. Drop biscuits are just that, take a spoonful and drop them on a hot pan ( preferably cast iron)

                                          Omit the sugar, and you're on your way to a good biscuit. Sorry - from the south. No sugar needed - supposed to be savory 😉

                                                "I was eating a biscuit or two a day. It was pretty hard core." You think a biscuit or two a day is hard core? Oh, honey, you haven't even begun to approach hard core biscuit eating. Go down South. Deep South. That's where it's hard core.

                                                  Drop biscuits are meant to be scooped up and dropped on the pan. You aren't supposed to roll them into balls, the weight of the rolled dough made them to doughy and not throughly cooked.

It should be a little wetter and u drop ur spoon fulls on the baking sheet and bake at 400 for 15 to 18 min...just beautiful. I like the idea of a square. I'm going to try it. Thanks again for the video...BLESSINGS

They use them for sandwiches as well, so them being too tall can get in the way of the other ingredients--too much buscuit can, at times, be a hinderance. At times, mind you. Don't be hatin'.

The higher quality virgin oils are fruity and fragrant while generic brand at the grocery might need a bit more sugar and salt. It works much better then crisco because even virgin coconut tastes less bitter and full of chemical. THough baking soda can be bitter, and baking powder is made with something called cream of tartar which is substitute lemon from medieval times. Just keep it cold cold cold

                                                                                  • De Anne Hodum

Usually I do 30-60 min in the back of the regular fridge (so I would say at least 20 in the freezer), and I've done overnight before as well. <---the best I've ever done.
