What makes a drop biscuit different from a regular biscuit?

Traditional biscuits are made by cutting cold butter or shortening into flour and other ingredients to create a crumbly dough. The dough is then kneaded and rolled out, and the biscuits are cut out using a biscuit cutter before being baked in the oven. This process creates a flaky and layered texture in the biscuit.

Drop biscuits, on the other hand, are made by mixing all the ingredients together to create a soft and sticky dough. Instead of being rolled out, the dough is simply scooped or "dropped" onto a baking sheet and baked in the oven. This results in a more rustic-looking biscuit with a slightly denser texture than traditional biscuits, but they are still light and fluffy.

Drop biscuits are often quicker and easier to make than traditional biscuits since there is no need to roll out the dough or use a biscuit cutter. They can also be customized by adding additional ingredients like cheese, herbs, or spices to the dough.

What makes drop biscuits crumbly?

Drop biscuits are typically not as crumbly as traditional biscuits because they are made by simply dropping or scooping the dough onto a baking sheet, rather than being rolled and cut out. The dough for drop biscuits is usually softer and more moist, which results in a slightly denser and moistren texture compared to traditional biscuits. However, if you want to make crumbly drop biscuits, you can adjust the recipe to include more dry ingredients, like flour, and less liquid. Adding fat, such as butter or shortening, to the dough can also make it more crumbly. The fat creates little pockets of air in the dough, which help to make it flaky and crumbly. Another way to make drop biscuits crumbly is to handle the dough as little as possible. Overworking the dough can result in tough biscuits, while leaving it slightly lumpy and irregular can create a more crumbly texture. Finally, baking the biscuits until they are just golden brown can also help to create a crumbly texture, as overbaking can cause them to become dry and tough.

What is the secret to light fluffy biscuits?

There are a few key tips and techniques for making light and fluffy biscuits:.

Use the right ingredients: Use fresh baking powder and baking soda to ensure that your biscuits rise properly. Make sure your flour is fresh and doesn't contain any lumps.

Keep your ingredients cold: Cold ingredients help create a flaky texture. Use cold butter, buttermilk, or milk and work quickly to keep everything as cold as possible.

Handle the dough gently: Overworking the dough can result in tough, dense biscuits. Mix the dough until just combined, and avoid kneading or handling it too much.

Don't twist the biscuit cutter: When cutting out your biscuits, push the biscuit cutter straight down without twisting it. Twisting the cutter can seal the edges of the dough and prevent the biscuits from rising properly.Arrange biscuits close together:

 When you place the biscuits on the baking sheet, arrange them close together. This will help them rise and become taller and more fluffy.Bake at high temperature: Preheat your oven to a high temperature, usually around 425-450°F (220-230°C), and bake the biscuits for a short time, around 10-15 minutes. This high temperature helps create a nice crust on the outside while the inside remains fluffy.By following these tips, you should be able to achieve light, fluffy, and delicious biscuits every time!
