How To Make Bisquick Roll Biscuits Recipe
Making these takes jus a few minutes. Simply mix your dry ingredients, cut-in your butter, add your wet ingredients and roll them out. Voila! You’re ready to cut some awesome homemade biscuits and throw them in the oven. Just don’t forget to brush the tops with heavy cream.
Okay, there’s a couple of little tricks to help bring your biscuits to life and ensure they’re totally awesome! You’ll want to mix the dry ingredients first before cutting in your butter or adding anything wet.
Mixing dry ingredients separately helps with dispersion, emulsification, and flavor but that’s not all. Mixing strengthens gluten which can make baked goods tough and chewy. Combining dry ingredients separately means you’ll have to do less mixing when you add the other stuff.
Besides saving your shoulder, mixing with a light hand will give you soft fluffy biscuits. Don’t overdo it!
Cubing the butter allows you can incorporate it quickly before it warms up and softens! Super important for flakiness.
The ingredient list for this recipe is short and sweet. Lots of people make Bisquick biscuits without milk but I find the milk helps keep them moist. If you’re having Bisquick biscuits and gravy, it’s not a big deal but you’ll notice the difference otherwise. Here’s what ya’ need.
Bisquick – Well, ya gotta’ have the Bisquick (instead of flour)! You just need a little more than a couple of cups.
Baking Powder – Doesn’t Bisquick already have this included? Yes, it does. However, after baking these for decades, I’ve learned that adding a little extra baking powder ensures these bad boys bake up much lighter and fluffier, just like you want them to, right?!
Sugar – Tossing in a little bit of sugar (just a tad) does wonder for the flavor of your biscuits. Try it once and you’ll be hooked.
Butter – You’ll want to use unsalted butter cut up into small cubes. Cutting it up into small cubes makes it easier to cut-in to your dry ingredients. I like to cut up my butter, spread it out on a small plate, and stick it into the freezer for a few minutes before I get started.
Milk – Adding a little bit of milk will help keep your biscuits nice-n-moist inside while holding everything together.
Cream – Brushing just a little heavy cream over the top of your biscuits before they go into the oven will help them brown nicely and gives them that great little pop of extra flavor. Like all of the best recipe tricks, I learned this from my Grandma!
Storing is easy if you have any leftovers. These guys are so yummy they tend to get gobbled up quickly.
They will keep in a resealable plastic bag in the fridge. Remove as much air as possible from the bag before sealing to prevent your biscuits from drying out.
Can You Freeze This?
You sure can! You’ll want to make sure your biscuits cool completely before preparing them for storage. When I freeze mine, I like to wrap them in plastic wrap to protect them from the air before tossing them in a freezer bag. It’s an extra step and it’s not required but it works!
Make Ahead Tips
Meal prep is awesome, I get it. But, this recipe is so simple there’s really no prep to speak of. You can pre-measure your dry ingredients and store them separately but that’s about it. At least that much can be premixed and ready to go.
How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?
Well, if you protect your little gems so that air can’t penetrate the container, they’ll stay fresh and yummy for up to about a week in the fridge. Some people like to keep their biscuits on the counter, but I prefer the method above.
Serving up a batch of these impressive homemade biscuits made with super simple no-fail ingredients means the next meal is gonna’ be a real treat. Depending on what that meal’s gonna’ be, you may want to kick them up a notch.
Toss in some sage, thyme, or rosemary for a fresh pop of herbaceous flavor or turn them into savory garlic biscuits. Here are a few other popular suggestions.
What Other Ways Can I Cook These Biscuits?
Actually, these are so totally scrumptious, you may not want to make anything else. You could even just have biscuits and gravy – make a meal out of them.
If you’re in the mood for something equally as moist and delicious (without the gravy), you can always whip up some light fluffy Bisquick pancakes. Of course, making Bisquick waffles is always an option (more craters to fill up with syrup) too.
Can I Make This Sweeter?
When I serve these, my family has a hard time choosing between grape jelly and honey. They get really excited spreading one of these sweet wholesome toppings on my warm fluffy biscuits. I can’t help myself!
Now, if you’re ready to journey into sweet surrender-land you can whip up some Bisquick cinnamon rolls that will rock your world! Or if you make Bisquick scones, you can always throw a handful of berries in there. You have so many sweet options, it may surprise you.
Can This Be Baked As Muffins?
Bisquick muffins are a quick, easy, cakey take on the biscuit recipe! Soon to come on the blog will be more of these delicious muffin variations. Sweet Bisquick blueberry muffins are a perennial favorite and always a huge hit at breakfast time.
