Learn how to make biscuits fluffy and featherlight from the pros in the Southern Living Test Kitchen.
Step 1: Grate Butter
Step 2: Stir Ingredients
Stir together all ingredients exactly 15 times to form a ragged, slightly sticky dough.
Step 3: Fold Biscuits
Fold and roll the dough 5 times before cutting. This creates buttery layers that bake up flaky.
Step 4: Cut Dough
Punch straight down when cutting. Don't twist; it will ruin your layers and reduce the overall rise.
Step 5: Bake Biscuits
Arrange dough rounds so the sides touch. The biscuits will help each other rise to the occasion.
