  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing dough for four to six strokes or just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough until 3/4-inch thick. Cut dough with a floured 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cutting straight down with no twisting. Reroll dough cuttings as necessary.

  • Place biscuits 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet or place in an 11x7x2-inch baking pan with the biscuit edges just touching. Bake in a 475 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove biscuits from baking sheet or pan; serve warm with Sausage Gravy. Makes 10 biscuits.
