Sprinkle flour on the surface of counter. Push the dough into a big ball and sprinkle flour on top. Gently knead the ball of dough (or "fluff" like Grandma says). Do not knead like regular bread dough. Roll the dough out until it is about 1/2"- 3/4" thick. Cut the biscuits out with a biscuit cutter or cookie cutter.
