These were wonderful. As someone who has never done a biscuit more complex than a Bisquick drop biscuit, I thought I was being ambitious by trying this homemade biscuit for the first time. I'm pretty experienced in the kitchen but recently trying to expand by doing things like my own pie crusts and now biscuits (things that can be ruined being overworked)...it turned out fantastic! My only word of advice it not to fear your dough being under-worked. Chef John's video is a wonderful guide. I always freeze half my butter when I buy it (Costco) and it works well when doing biscuits (AND pie crusts for that matter). They didn't seem to rise much but I made them pretty small, next time I will double the recipe and roll my dough out thicker. They were pretty flaky and the flavor was absolutely wonderful. I made them for the hubby, and my 10 month old daughter, and when my older kids tried them, they demanded more. Unfortunately we ate them all, haha these will be a hot commodity around my house. (*EDIT: Made them again, and this time I just made 6 large biscuits--I cut the dough with a knife ad just made square biscuits to eliminate having the leftover tough ones--and it was wonderful!)
