  1. Number one tip to how to make fluffy biscuits is to measure flour properly!!

What does that really mean? Well if you are scooping rather than spooning you’re doing it all WRONG! You should never dunk your measuring cup into the box, bag, or container filled with flour or baking mix like this. If you do you’ll get a dense texture because you’ll smash it down scooping up too much.

Instead use a large spoon out of your silverware drawer and spoon it into the measuring cup moving it from side to side. This way you’re essentially sprinkling the powdered mix in so it aerates, that will help them become fluffy.

2. Second thing to remember is to to gently fold your ingredients together just until they are incorporated and then STOP. Over-mixing will take the fluff out of baked goods.

Now that you have all of your wet and dry ingredients into one bowl let’s talk about mixing, and how much you should really do. Not much is the short answer. Meaning this, you just want to incorporated it enough so that the powder is damp and folded in with the wet ingredients and then stop.

As soon as it resembles a bowl full of dough it is ready to roll out on a lightly floured surface. Over mixing will make biscuits tough, a NO go friends. Since you have Bisquick mix handy just use a Tbsp of that on your work surface so it won’t stick, too much and once again it will dry out and not get what you want.

Always make sure that each one is the same thickness and size so they bake evenly, 1/2 inch thick is usually great for homemade biscuits in air fryer.

Now you may have gone to all the trouble to make from scratch some great dinner rolls. I do that too SOMETIMES but usually only during the holidays because let’s face it, I am busy y’all. Using a boxed baking mix like this one can save you tons of time because it already has some leavening agent in it, a bit of salt, etc….

We do add a few other items beyond what they suggest on the box itself. If you make one batch of theirs and one of these you will likely understand why ours are better. Like way better because of butter…..

3. Let’s talk about this for a second shall we. Use COLD butter and a pastry blender or cutter to blend it in too. Using melted butter will make biscuits more dense, just don’t do it. I prefer salted too instead of unsalted, to add flavor.

4. Do NOT overbake them! You want the edges to be golden brown and the center to not be sticky any longer. Remove from the pan and on to a cooling rack so they don’t continue baking and get dry.

Fluffier Biscuits

That is the gist of making the fluffiest biscuits with Bisquick y’all. I mean you should always preheat oven for everything you bake, that goes without saying.

Beyond that you could make cheddar bay biscuits by adding some shredded cheddar cheese and garlic into the mix. These were kept quite plain just to explain things but just know that you can tinker with the add ins once you get the hang of this.

For a basic biscuit you will need:

  1. Bisquick baking mix
  2. Cold butter
  3. Whole milk
  4. A bit of sugar
  5. Baking powder
  6. A bit of minced garlic and melted butter will be brushed on to the top before baking

If you don’t have a drop biscuit cutter don’t bother buying one. You can use the top of a glass too. If you flip it upside down it is about the same size as what you see here. I did that for years before spending the few dollars on this. I mean it’s worth it to order one of these but just in case ya’ know….

Do Bisquick biscuits need to be refrigerated?

NOOooooo, that will dry them out. Instead store leftovers in a freezer bag with ALL of the air sucked out. Leave on the countertop for a day or two and enjoy with butter, slow cooker apple butter and jam.

This whole process should take about 30 minutes from start to finish. Then use the rest of your mix to make all sorts of other things like:

  • In a bowl combine Bisquick, sugar and baking powder together. Then pour in milk and slice cold butter into small thin pieces. Use a pastry cutter to blend together. STOP when powder is incorporated, over mixing will make then dense.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Use 1 tbsp of Bisquick to lightly "flour" a cutting board. Transfer dough to board and roll out to 1/2" thick.
  • Use a round cookie cutter to make about 12 total round biscuits. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
  • Whisk together melted butter and minced garlic in a dish, brush on the top of each one. Bake for 8-10 minutes, just until the tops are golden brown and middle is no longer sticky, check with a toothpick.
  • Remove, take biscuits off of hot baking sheet and on to a cooling rack or enjoy immediately.

These turned out perfect. I used a pastry cutter to incorporate the butter before adding the milk and after stirring the milk in carefully with fork, I pressed it into a disc shape by hand, then cut and baked.

Hi I don’t have a pastry cutter is there something else I can use. I really want to make a good fluffy biscuit.My mom use to make them for me before she past, so needless to say I miss her and want a good fluffy biscuit.

Turn a glass upside down and punch out that way? Pizza cutter?

Thank you for sharing. Delicious and I’m not a baker person. the family devoured these and all commented on how amazingly fluffy and moist they were. Instructions are easy to follow and learned some things too.

I had made the recipe on box mix and they were dry you could not swallow. I searched for this recipe and I too have a huge box of bisquick mix that would have likely gone to waste if I had not found this recipe. This recipe made cardboard biscuits into amazing biscuits.

I didn’t roll the dough. I patted it into a rectangle, folded the ends into the middle 3x, patting it into a rectangle after each folding. Helped make them fluffier.

The biscuits came out tender inside, crunchy on top. I didn’t cut the butter fine enough, which I will remedy next time. But these were the best biscuits I’ve ever made. My husband agrees.
