Get Started with Preheating

First things first, preheat your oven. The temperature may vary depending on the biscuit flavor, so check the instructions on the back of your bag. Here’s a little tip: I always start with two bags of mix because biscuits disappear in no time. Plus, it’s easier to make a larger batch. Trust me, you’ll thank yourself later.

The Art of Mixing

Now, let’s get to the fun part – mixing! Start by reserving a small amount of biscuit mix in a separate bowl for dusting. This will come in handy later. Use a large bowl for the rest of the mix, giving you plenty of room to work with. Remember, biscuits are like quick bread, and they need space to rise.

Next, add salted butter to the mix. If you prefer unsalted butter, go ahead and use that. We like using salted butter for that extra touch of flavor. Pinch off the butter and incorporate it into the mix, snapping and pinching with your fingers until it resembles finely grated parmesan cheese. This should take no more than 5 minutes.

Making It Extra Special

Now comes the exciting part – adding the special ingredients! Depending on the biscuit flavor, you’ll need to add cream cheese, whole fat buttermilk, or whipping cream. These additions give the biscuits their unique taste and texture. Mix in the ingredients, snapping and pinching until everything is well incorporated.

Shaping and Baking

Dust your work surface and remove the dough from the bowl. Be gentle; we don’t want to overwork it. Use a rolling pin to even out the dough without applying too much pressure. Aim for a minimum of three fingers high, but four fingers if you’re making breakfast biscuits.

Time to stamp! Use a biscuit cutter or any similar tool to stamp straight down into the dough, without twisting or turning. Place the biscuits closely together on a lined tray, maximizing the use of the first roll-out. Keep going until you’ve used up all the dough.

The Southern Churro and Snake Treats

When you’re left with some leftover dough, get creative! You can use it to make crackers, biscuit bowls, and even a fun snack called the Southern Churro. Roll the dough into a snake shape, sprinkle it with melted butter and cinnamon sugar, and enjoy!

Into the Oven and the Aroma of Deliciousness

Before you put the biscuits in the oven, brush the tops with butter for that golden finish. Bake them for around 16 to 20 minutes, turning the pan halfway through to ensure even browning. Keep an eye on them as they can brown quickly. Once they’re perfectly golden, take them out of the oven.

The Moment of Truth

Now for the moment you’ve been waiting for – tasting those mouthwatering biscuits! Brush them with a little extra butter because, well, everything is better with butter! Whether you’re a fan of grape jelly or savory pimento cheese, use a fork to gently open the biscuits and create a delicious sandwich. Enjoy the beautiful crunch on the outside, the down-pillow texture on the inside, and the unforgettable flavors that’ll transport you straight back to your childhood.

So there it is – a step-by-step guide to making Callie’s hot little biscuits. We hope this encourages you to get creative in the kitchen and create your own biscuit masterpieces. The best part is sharing these delectable treats with your loved ones. Happy baking, y’all!
