Why do we need to know how to make biscuits with one hand?
Maybe we don’t. Maybe we actually have two hands to work with in the kitchen. Either way, don’t we all love learning ways to make our kitchen work easier? So whether you have one hand or two to work with in the kitchen, you’ll love how this easy biscuit-making-method cuts out a few steps and makes for a less messy biscuit-making process!
Me? I’m almost always working one-handed in the kitchen these days:
Who actually even cares about biscuits? I’ll just nibble on her neck all day long. Those pudgy hands!! HER CHEEKS.
But back to the biscuits.
I find that I can do quite a bit with just one hand, but using a rolling pin isn’t one of them. So one morning, I decided to attempt biscuits while holding the baby, and would you believe, it worked? From start to finish!
How did I make biscuits with one hand?
- I scooped some Quick Mix into a bowl. I poured in some milk. I didn’t measure. I stirred, kind of. I made dough. The baby used her gummy grin to affirm my abilities.
2. I put the dough directly onto my baking stone. I pressed it down with my one free hand. It looked like this:
Good grief. Are we rolling our eyes together about the fact that while I made biscuits with one hand, I also continued to wash said hand so I could take pictures with my phone of the biscuit-making process? I guess I just really wanted you to see how easy this is.
3. I dug my biscuit cutter out of the back of my catch-all drawer. I used it to make the ugliest-shaped biscuits you’ve ever seen. The baby was still impressed.
4. I grabbed up the excess dough and rolled it into two balls, then pushed them down onto the baking stone.
5. I baked the biscuits. They turned out incredible and delicious.
6. We ate them with butter and honey and jelly and gravy. We were all so happy because it had been over a year since I’d last made biscuits.
This gravy recipe is coming soon!
No matter if you have one hand or two while working in the kitchen:
Skip rolling your dough onto the counter before cutting your biscuits!
Simply press your dough onto your baking pan. Then cut your biscuits on your baking pan.
It saves a step. It saves a mess. Why have I not thought of this before?
