Scaling recipes isn’t as cut and dry g make multiple batches g, KEEP YOUR TOOLS COLD DON’T OVERWORK THE DOUGH To ensure the butter in the dough doesn’t melt before it gets to the oven (leading to flat biscuits), pop all your tools (box grater, bowl, fork, and biscuit cutter) into the freezer for a few minutes before you get started. Overworkin­g causes excess gluten to develop, leading to tough, not tender, biscuits. Additional­ly, it can warm and potentiall­y melt the butter, leading to squatty biscuits. LIGHT, FLAKY, AND TALL Patting biscuit dough to the specified thickness creates a loftier biscuit. Don’t use a rolling pin to roll out the dough — a pin can compress it unnecessar­ily. Use a sharp cutter and press straight down. Dull cutters, or other blunt-edged tools compress the dough and seal the biscuit edges, reducing rise. Twisting the cutter causes biscuits to rise unevenly. PAT, DON’T ROLL CUTTER CUES right, 24 C U I S I N E AT H O M E .CO M
