  3. Drop onto parchment lined baking sheet about a quarter cup at a time. You should be able to form 6 to 8 biscuits.
  4. Bake in a 450 degree preheated oven for about 17 to 19 minutes. Or until golden brown. Brush the tops with melted butter and enjoy!.

The secret to excellent biscuits is COLD BUTTER. Many times the biscuit dough gets worked so much that the butter softens before the biscuits even go in the oven. You want to handle the dough as little as possible because we want that butter to stay cold. Biscuits are what take us into the kitchen today to cook: fat, flaky mounds of quick bread, golden brown, with a significant crumb Composed of flour, baking powder, fat and a liquid, then baked in a hot oven, they are an excellent sop for sorghum syrup, molasses or honey They are marvelous layered with country ham or smothered in white sausage gravy, with eggs, with grits Are biscuits better with butter or shortening? There are some recipes out there that call for shortening (like these fluffy biscuits), however, most call for butter.
