    Hello and help please. With the Holiday's just around the corner I am looking for the recipe for the little hard baking powder biscuts that are usually used for miniature ham appetizers maybe an inch and a quarter. We used to get a larger size in grade school that was the same thing.A long time ago ! LOL. Any help appreciated. Thanks , Jeff

    The best biscuits in the world are made with Bisquick. The recipe is on the box.

    Bruce,

    My Great Grandmothers biscuits were the best in the land. People drove for 20 mi during the depression just to have some of her fine cookin'! I don't think she ever bought a box of Bisquick a day in her life.

    I'm glad I came along soon enough to sample her fine cookin'.

    I use the Bisquick recipe plus I add a little sugar. Getting the right amount of water is critical as well as the dough thickness and biscuit size. Do not over bake.

    That said, I would not use Bisquick biscuits as they get real hard when they cool.

    Instead, I recommend that you go to a Cracker Barrel restaurant and buy a couple of bags of their biscuit mix.

    Bisquick is good, if you can find Martha White self riseing flour the and follow the directions on the bag. If that wouln't work for you 2 cups flour, 2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, cut in 1/3 cup of shortening, bake 450 deg. If I made it to breif PM me Paul

    1: go to grocery

    2: find biscuits in cardboard tube

    3: follow directions on tube

    I found a tube biscut that is excellent, and cheap too. Try them all till you get the right one.

    Go to the store and buy them Indian Money biscuits. They are the best ones. Yep, when you get them home you "Wompum" on the edge of the countertop and getem out of the tube and put em in the pan and in the oven they go:) I've never tried to make from scratch any of the guys reciepes but I'll bet they all make good biscuits.
