What is the best flour for biscuits

All purpose flour with protein count around 9-12% is probably the best. This type will give you tender and not too dense a biscuit.

What does stir just until combined mean?

It means to combine the dry and wet ingredients until the dry ingredients are completely moistened, but the mixture is still slightly lumpy. Do not over mix or mix until smooth or your biscuits will turn out very dry and tough.

How to know when they are done

When the biscuits have risen and are a golden brown they should be done.

Tips for making the best biscuits

  1. Make sure your oven is hot enough.
  2. The butter, milk and mascarpone should all be cold from the fridge.
  3. Make sure your baking powder has not expired.
  4. Biscuits should be baked immediately and not left to sit at room temperature.
  5. Depending on how high you like your biscuits they will double in height when baked.
  6. Do not over knead the dough or you will have a dense and dry biscuit.
  7. Do not use a mixer when making biscuits.
  8. Make sure to preheat your oven.

How to store biscuits

The biscuits should be stored in an air tight container at room temperature. They will keep for up to two days.

Can the Biscuits be frozen?

You can always make the dough, cut out the biscuits and freeze, then bake when needed. You can bake them directly from the freezer, although they may need a bit more time to bake.

If freezing baked biscuits then make sure they are completely cool, then place them either in a freezer safe bag or container. They will keep for about a month in the freezer.

    These were delicious! I cute the butter and mascarpone into the flour mixture and then added a bit of leftover greek yogurt with the milk. I will definitely make these again!

    1. Hi Melissa, I think it would be fine to add some fresh cut up fruit, add it with the milk because you don’t want to over mix the dough. Let me know how it goes. Take care.

    These scones were very yummy. I used self raising flour instead of all purpose plus baking powder. I felt mine didn’t rise as high as yours. Could that be the reason? Jo

    1. Hi Jo, thanks so much, glad you enjoyed them. I think yes that is the reason, try without and let me know. If you can or whenever you can, with all the flour shortage. 🙂
