How to Make Biscuits

If your idea of fresh-baked biscuits includes a tube-shaped can that pops open when you give it a whack, it's time you learn how to make biscuits from scratch. Sure, those pre-made, refrigerated biscuits come in all sorts of shapes and textures, but nothing tastes as good as a fresh, flaky biscuit you've made yourself. Once you've caught on to the basics of how to make biscuits you can experiment with adding ingredients to give them your personal touch.
