Homemade Biscuits - Any good tips?

chef chicklet | Apr 19, 2007 12:50 PM

One of the topics today is asking what do we make when we have some free time. So today is my day to make good biscuits.

I once had them at this restaurant and they were as light and airy little pillows, always served as their "Biscuit and Gravy" breakfast item and one of my favorites.

The restaurant started with Greek owners, and then after changing to Asian owners that kept the recipes and used them. All of their sauces and breakfasts had something in them, a unique spice that really made a wonderful eggs benedict outstangingly good. But truly their shining stars were those biscuits!!

When I make biscuits, often they end up heavy, don't rise very much at all, and the insides have a crumbly texture. Their biscuits have that a slight layer thing going on, and that's the biscuit I'm searching for. And they promised me that they were indeed homemade, but would not share the recipe, they would just smile when asked.

Anyone know a good recipe for fluffy and lighter than air biscuits?
