What can I do with too dry biscuits?

Can you use old biscuits?
Yes, you can use canned biscuits after their expiration or best buy date. They actually keep a long time. I volunteer at a food bank, and we had a pallet of expired biscuits/crescent rolls. Some did open, so we tossed them.
How do you make canned biscuits better?
You can easily turn canned biscuits into scones by pressing dried fruit, oats and brown sugar, or chocolate chips into the dough before baking. Also try drizzling a simple glaze (made with milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar) over them after baking to fancy them up.
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.
Why arent my biscuits 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.
What makes homemade biscuits dry?
Often, the culprit is a bad ratio of ingredients. Adding too much flour and not enough butter will make your biscuits dry. Another common culprit for dry biscuits is baking them for too long. Biscuits require very little time to be ready and usually need to bake or be rolled out for only a few minutes.
Do biscuits go bad in the fridge?
To maximize the shelf life of biscuits, cover with foil or plastic wrap or place in plastic bag to prevent drying out. Properly stored, freshly baked biscuits will last for about 1 to 2 days at normal room temperature. Freshly baked biscuits will keep well for about 1 week in the fridge when properly stored.
What happens if you eat expired biscuits?
However, that’s not to say that eating expired food is without risk. Eating expired foods or foods that are past their best-by date can expose your body to harmful bacteria that can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and a fever.
How long do biscuits last in airtight container?
