How do you make biscuits light and fluffy?
For soft and fluffy biscuits, blend the liquid and dry ingredients just until the dough “resembles cottage cheese,” Sonoskus says. This stops you from activating too much gluten in the flour and ending up with a tougher biscuit that doesn’t rise as high. But even if you mix too much, don’t worry.
How do I make soft biscuits?
- Heat one or two biscuits into the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. Touch them to check for softness.
- Wrap cooled biscuits in a slightly damp kitchen towel and heat for 20 to 30 seconds.
- Store the biscuits in a tightly sealed plastic bag with a slightly damp paper towel inside.

Why are my biscuits not crunchy?
Sugar attracts moisture and homemade biccies often contain a lot of it, so they are prone to losing their crunch. To stop biscuits getting soft, make sure your container is airtight and put a layer of dry rice in the bottom of it to absorb any rogue water particles in the air.
How do you make biscuits rise more?
When you set the biscuits on the baking sheet, make sure the sides are touching. As they bake, they will cling to each other, rising bigger and taller. A hot oven helps biscuits bake—and rise—quickly. We recommend 475˚F for 15 minutes.
Why are my homemade biscuits hard?
When biscuits turn out hard and cracked instead of tender and flaky, one of two culprits is usually responsible: overworked dough or low oven temperature. Biscuits also require high heat to bake properly. Check your oven temperature to ensure it’s heating correctly before baking your biscuits.
What is the best fat for biscuits?
Butter is the winner here. The butter biscuits were moister with that wonderful butter taste and melt-in-your mouth texture. I’d be curious to test out substituting half or just two tablespoons of the butter with shortening to see if you get the best of both.
What ingredient makes biscuits rise?
Overworked dough will produce a tough biscuit, so just give it a few quick turns to make sure all the flour is incorporated. Here are a few more tips you may find useful: Add a 1 1/ 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to every cup of all-purpose flour to make your own self-rising flour.
