The Secret to Making Light Biscuits

Anyone can make good biscuits by following the four principles which govern their production:

  1. Cut in the shortening, as the heat of the hands melts the shortening and more flour gets worked into the dough, toughening it.
  2. Have a very soft dough. Add just enough liquid to combine the flour and dough. Use cold milk or very cold water. Keep dough cool.
  3. Bake in a very hot oven at 450 degrees for about fifteen minutes, depending on size of biscuits.
  4. Use Calumet Baking Powder.

While kneading is good for yeast bread, it will ruin biscuit dough. A stiff baking powder dough kneeded and worked will make poor biscuits, while a soft dough handled lightly will make them tender, light and palatable.
