I know, something I hardly ever do. This is one of those test-of-manhood things for me, like, everyone seems like they can make biscuits but I totally stink at baking but I really wanted to know how to make them so I told myself AGES ago that this needs to happen and then I looked and looked at recipes and read method after method and finally just did it one day and here’s what happened!
I’m such a fraidy-cat. I’ve actually never bought a packet of yeast, much less attempted to used it. Maybe when I’m 40.
The biscuits, though, require no yeast, worked the first time, and were delicious. Winning all around! I used this recipe (there are several on this page, I used the very first one) and zero special equipment except a food processor. No rolling pin, no pastry cutter, no biscuit cutter, NOTHING. I knew I wanted to make these square or rectangular because I don’t own a rolling pin, and the square biscuit approach means that you cut biscuits ONCE and lose zero dough. Again: winning all around.
