I get a lot of questions about biscuit making. Do you mash them like a cathead biscuit or do you use a biscuit cutter? But I always get the question, “If you twist the cutter while cutting out the biscuit will it hurt the dough.”
Well I got a tip from a guy that explains this.
When you twist the dough while cutting out the biscuit it can seal the outside edge of the dough and prevent the dough from rising.
So, if you’re having trouble getting your biscuits to rise, you might try this easy trick the next time you’re making a batch! Don’t twist the cutter simply cut the biscuit out with one downward cut.
