Bonkers for Biscuit Month!

September 12, 2016

With the month of September comes a lot of things: fall is on its way, the weather gets cooler (maybe?), the leaves will start changing, all things pumpkin spice erupt and new seasons of your favorite TV shows begin. But it’s also National Biscuit Month! One may not know it, but there are many different kinds of biscuits and ways that they can be cooked or baked.

Take a look at this sampling of four popular biscuit varieties to see if you were aware of the difference[1]!

   –  Rolled biscuits – One of the most popular baking-powder leavened quick breads. The inside is light, fluffy and tender, while the crust is a crisp, even brown. They have a flat top and straight sides.
   –  Drop biscuits – These have more milk added to the dough than rolled biscuits and is more moist. They are coarser in appearance and texture.
   –  Scones – These are sweet and wedge-shaped and are usually made with cream and butter. They have a tender, heavy crumb and a slightly crusty brown top.
   –  Shortcakes – These use rich biscuits or scones as a base and are served either split or whole, topped with sweetened fruit and whipped or ice cream.Pillsbury Grands! Homestyle Original Biscuits
