How To: Bake the Perfect Biscuits

Posted On : 16 September 2014 | Category : All Hints & Tips, How To

Discover the secret to delicious, evenly baked biscuits.

Step 1:
Line a flat baking tray with non-stick baking paper. The tray can have a small lip (slightly raised edges), but biscuits will not brown evenly in a tray that is too deep.

Step 2:
Do not crowd biscuits – it’s important for air to circulate for even cooking. Place biscuits in rows, lining up each row to sit behind the gaps formed by the biscuits in front.

Step 3:
When biscuits are baked, remove from oven and stand on tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Standing time allows biscuits to firm, so they won’t break.
