Expert Tips

For tender biscuits, knead only five times. That's just enough to make the dough smooth and well coated so it's no longer sticky.

Don't like to knead dough? Make drop biscuits by decreasing the Bisquick mix to 2 1/4 cups and skipping the kneading step. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet, and bake for about 10 minutes. You'll get 10 drop biscuits.
