when it's all done, it should be a pale, orange color...and rather sticky.
Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface, and pat it out to about 1 inch high...this will make nice, high biscuits. At this point, you can preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Using a 2 1/2 inch round, dip it in some flour, and cut out the biscuits. It's important to push down firmly and lift the cutter straight back up, without twisting. This helps the biscuits rise nicely while they bake. Don't forget to dip the cutter into your flour after each cut.
Place the dough rounds on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Push the dough scraps back together, again...try not to overwork the dough, and continue to cut out biscuits until all the dough is used up.
Bake the biscuits at 425 degrees for 15-17 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden brown and deep brown on the bottom.These biscuits taste best just slightly warm...the kids loved them with some butter and honey ;-).
I hope you give these a try...they're a really nice change from the usual. And...they smell FANTASTIC coming out of the oven. Gabriel hung around the kitchen for a good 10 minutes after the first batch was done, hoping and begging for a taste...and of course, Mommy obliged!
God bless your table tonight!
