What is the secret to an excellent biscuit?
The secret to excellent biscuits is COLD BUTTER. Really cold. Many times the biscuit dough gets worked so much that the butter softens before the biscuits even go in the oven. Try cutting the butter into small pieces and stick back in the fridge pulling out only when ready to incorporate into the dough.
Can you substitute milk for water in Jiffy biscuit mix?
What can I use instead of milk in a jiffy cornbread mix? You can substitute water for milk in your cornbread recipe. It won’t be quite as rich, but it will be cornbread.
How do you make biscuits taste better?
Brush the biscuits with butter after baking “If you want the most luscious biscuits ever, brush the tops with melted butter after they come out of the oven,” says James. Brushing the butter on after baking ensures that the butter soaks into the baked biscuit so you get that great buttery flavor in every bite.
What is the difference between Jiffy baking mix and Jiffy biscuit mix?
A box of Jiffy Biscuit Mix (not Jiffy Baking mix ) is 8 oz by weight or 2 cups by measure. Jiffy Biscuit Mix is flour, shortening, leavening, sugar, salt and buttermilk. Jiffy tastes much better than Bisquick.
How do you make biscuits rise more?
Place your cut biscuits on a parchment-lined baking pan to avoid sticking. 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.
What can I use instead of biscuit cutter?
Large Cup. The rim of a large cup is one of the simplest biscuit cutter substitutes. Spray the rim with a little non-stick spray before using it to cut the rolled-out biscuit dough. It is possible that the biscuit, once it has been cut, could get stuck in the cup.
Can you make jiffy with water?
“JIFFY” mixes can also be prepared with water or plant-based milk alternatives like soy, almond or coconut milk.

Can I make Bisquick with water?
To make Bisquick pancakes without milk (or Bisquick biscuits without milk), substitute an equal amount water or non-dairy milk for the milk called for on the recipe on the package. If you mix Bisquick with just water, you add no additional nutrients or calories.
Can I use water instead of milk in biscuits?
You can use water in most baking recipes that call for milk. Use 1 cup of water and 1-1/2 teaspoons of butter for every 1 cup of milk called for in the recipe. The extra butter will help your baked goods stay moist.
What’s the best flour for biscuits?
Any southern baker will tell you that to make the best biscuits, you need special flour–specifically White Lily All-Purpose Flour milled from extra-fine, soft, red-winter wheat. Because, it’s low in both protein and gluten, this flour makes baked goods rise higher and come out lighter.
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.
Why do homemade biscuits fall apart?
When the fat is cut too small, after baking there will be more, smaller air pockets left by the melting fat. The result is a baked product that crumbles. When cutting in shortening and other solid fats, cut only until the pieces of shortening are 1/8- to 1/4-inch in size. Learn more about Fats in Baking.
