Ever in search of biscuits that actually rise, I tried this recipe and they DID, indeed, rise! HINT: Do not twist the biscuit cutter, just punch through the dough. Twisting "seals" the edges and the biscuit doesn't rise as well. The secret to this recipe, according to the author, is the type of flour. The lower the protein content, the higher the biscuit will rise. "Southern" flours such as White Lily, are recommended. Since Southern flours aren't always available, she came up with this preparation.
