It’s said that they’re easier to make than traditional biscuits and more foolproof due to the two types of leavening: baking soda and yeast. The addition of yeast also lightens up the dough, resulting in a lighter biscuit—hence the name. Traditionally, they’re bite-sized, but if you want bigger biscuits, roll them out 1/2-inch-thick. Another tip—placing the biscuits close together on the baking sheet makes them rise more. Serve them with an eggy dish for breakfast or as a dainty party appetizer, stuffed with thinly shaved country ham and a gloss of pepper jelly.
