This is another post which will entail one of my favorite breakfast treats – “Dusty Biscuits”. For quite some time, I’ve actually searched for how to really make the best biscuits that people enjoy. This recipe has been a complete hit.
In this post, we’ll cover how to make my “dusty biscuits” – which can make for a tasty breakfast treat, brunch and/or side for dinner.
These take only about 15-20 minutes to make, if you can master all the steps and get the dough together quickly. It takes some time to learn – trust me. Nonetheless, it’s worth the trial and error to get that perfected mold.
You’ll need to gather a few ingredients and do some prep work to start off this recipe.
Step 1 – Gather ingredients/materials
- Bisquick (2 cups)
- Milk (2% preferred – 1/2 cup or slightly more based on feel)
- Pam cooking spray (or other, I prefer pam though!)
- Medium – large bowl for mixing
- Wax paper
- Small oven pan
- Cutting board
- Small cup for shaping dough
Step 2 – Preheat oven
- Preheat oven to 425F.
After all the necessary ingredients and prep work has been assembled and followed, we can now proceed to making the biscuits!
Step 1 – Make the dough
- In a medium-large bowl, begin to combine ingredients (using small increments of milk to bisquick).
- Sift small increments of milk to bisquick mixture until it reaches a point where its “doughy” but not too sticky.
- Add more bisquick as needed (TIP: get the dough as close to being sticky but never reach that stage entirely).
Step 2 – Mold the mixture
- Proceed to mold the mixture into a ball.
- Grab wax paper and sprinkle a small amount of bisquick onto the surface.
- Proceed to press the ball into a pizza like dough formation on wax paper.
Step 3 – Cutting the dough
- Grab your small cup and begin to cut out circles.
- Rinse and repeat until all dough has been used.
Step 4 – Prepare to cook!
- Spray pam or any type of cooking spray onto an oven safe open pan.
- Spread circles of dough cut from the small cup onto the pan.
- Place pan into the pre-heated oven for 8 minutes.
Step 5 – Enjoy!
- Take biscuits out and serve with butter or one of my occasional favorites, garlic salt and land of lakes unsalted butter cooked in a small pot over the stovetop for glazing.
If you followed these steps correctly, your biscuits should turn out like the above. Keep in mind, a lot of cooking is based on feel and trial and error. If they came out cracked a little, it’s because your dough was a bit too coarse. This can be avoided by getting the mixture just as close to being sticky but almost like a piece a playdoh. It takes time, but it’s sure to be a great treat for multiple occasions!
