My mom always used a small drinking glass to cut out those perfect little biscuit circles. But there was always those left over scraps. And by the last cutting, those scraps had been handled to death. And anyone who knows a good biscuit knows that the less you roll and handle the dough, the lighter and flakier they will be.
I was making sausage gravy and biscuits the other day and snapped some quick pics of the no fuss way that I cut my biscuits.
Shape your dough into a rectangle. Not perfect, but it will do :)
Cut your dough into even rows. A sharp knife would do as well, but a pizza cutter is just so darn easy!
You can make your squares as big or as little as you like. No left over pieces!
They cook up just the same. I think they may even rise up better being cut with a sharp cutter. Who needs circles anyway :)
