Long before there were refrigerated cylinders of mediocre biscuit dough at every supermarket waiting to be popped from their container and tossed into the oven, there were fresh, home-baked biscuits. In the South, each woman has her own special recipe, her own process, and her own lore surrounding the biscuit. Do you use vegetable shortening or butter; do you roll out the dough or pat it gently with your hands? What about baking powder — how many tablespoons; do you knead it or hardly touch the dough? With so much mythologizing, it’s no wonder that Americans have settled on the mediocrity of a convenience food just to avoid treading on an adamant baker’s toes!While I appreciate a tale as much as the next woman, I also believe in de-mystifying processes, showing every person (Southern or otherwise) that getting a plate full of steaming biscuits on the table is an achievable goal. — Adrienne Kane, United States of BreadClick here for more of our best biscuit recipes.View Recipe
A cup of mashed sweet potatoes or pumpkin guarantees a soft biscuit. The gluten just can’t get all worked up, so to speak. They take a little longer to bake than a regular biscuit, but you get a better yield. Once you've mastered how to use the shortening or lard, substitute butter for a very special biscuit.
You may also want to try a savory variation. Omit the optional spices, or add ½ cup of crumbled, cooked bacon before adding the sweet potatoes.
Forget the butter! Spread some delicious chocolate over the biscuit for a decadent preview of dessert!

When fresh homemade pizzas come to mind, Pillsbury biscuit dough isn’t an obvious option for a crust. Bagels, old baguettes, and other pre-baked breads are the easiest to simply top with some sauce and cheese and reheat in the oven. But the sauce tends to make the final product soggy, and using fresh dough is generally preferable to just reheating old bread, right?
For fresh homemade mini-pizzas in a pinch, try using biscuit dough. It gives the final product an appealing rich sweetness, and they’re just the right size for a kid’s meal.

Got a can of Pillsbury biscuits languishing away in the back of the refrigerator, with no idea what to do? Here is one solution.
