This cheezy bacon cream biscuits recipe is just one of the biscuit recipes you will try. Some people like to opt for store bought refrigerated biscuits, but once you try making biscuits from scratch, there is no going back to store-bought. Light, fluffy buttermilk biscuits is another biscuit recipe you might try. There's nothing quite like a velvety, puffy biscuit, split open with some melted butter and honey dripping off for a breakfast food idea in the morning or served with butter for dinner. But there are a few secrets that you need to know before you tackle buttermilk biscuit recipes for best results. You want first to make sure the biscuit recipe you are using is a good one. The best proportion of flour to fat is usually 1/2 cup of fat for every two cups of flour. More fat will make for softer biscuits, and too little fat will result in dry and heavy biscuits. The type of flour that you use is also important. You don't want to use bread flour unless the biscuit recipe calls for it and avoid using whole wheat flour and other varieties of whole grain flours. These flours will make the biscuits tough and heavy. You want your biscuits to be light and fluffy.
The best combination for biscuit recipes is an all-purpose flour (either bleached or unbleached doesn't make too much difference, although bleached offers the lightest result) and cake flour. Cake flour is a soft flour that has less of the gluten protein. You can find cake flour right next to the other flours in your local grocery store. If you can't find cake flour, you can make some of your own by spooning 2 tablespoons of some cornstarch into the bottom of a measuring cup, then next lightly spooning in some all-purpose flour to fill the cup. Level the cup off, then sift the flour using a sieve or a metal sifter. It's also very important to measure the flour correctly. If you dip the measuring cup into the flour, you will have too much, and the biscuit recipe will be too tough and heavy. Also, make sure to not work in a hot kitchen. If the biscuit dough seems to be getting too soft or warm, you want to place it in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes. It's also a good idea to be sure your hands are cold too, by simply holding them under the cold water faucet for a few minutes during the biscuit baking process. Dry your hands and keep going.
