That was a new one for me, but as I’ve been reading about biscuits, I’ve learned that a “biscuit hand” is the light touch needed to incorporate all the ingredients into a mass of dough and to pat the dough out into a flattened shape ready for the biscuit cutter. And do you know why it’s best to use a metal cutter to stamp out the biscuits? A tumbler can certainly cut the shapes, but it needs to be twisted, pinching the dough and keeping the dough from fully rising. A metal cutter slides straight through the dough with no twisting. —By Candace Floyd, Relish Managing Editor Share this: Pin ItEmailPrint Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Biscuits With 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber per serving, biscuits are back on the menu for a healthy breakfast.
