This year when we went home for the holidays my mom decided to introduce the next generation to the process and taught three year old Obie how to make them. It was fun to see and surprising how quickly she caught on. The recipe is about as easy as it gets but there are a couple of equally easy missteps that can make the biscuits turn out like hockey pucks.
...but I suppose we can now say for sure it's so easy a three year old can do it.
Step 1: Ingredients and other things you'll need
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
Flour for rolling the dough
Medium sized baking sheet
2 inch round cookie cutter
Parchment to line the baking sheet
A mixing bowl
You'll also need a rolling pin, wine bottle or some other suitable object to use rolling out the dough
Step 2: Mix the dough
Once you're ready add the wet ingredients to the mixing bowl and then stir in the Bisquick. Mix enough so that the dough can be handled without falling apart but be careful not to over mix. Like many baked goods, over mixing can result in flat, hard treats from the oven.
Step 3: Turn out and roll the dough
Once that's accomplished roll out the dough until it's about a half inch thick, maybe a little more, and let it rest ten minutes or so.
Now would be a good time to pre-heat your oven to 475F.
