Why Are My Biscuits Gummy?

If the texture of your biscuits is gummy and dense, it means your butter is not cold enough. If the butter is warm, it will blend into the flour mixture and create a dense, gummy texture when baked. If your kitchen runs warm, you can chill your bowl and flour beforehand. You can also use a marble slab to work the dough, as well as it helps keep the temperature down.

How Do I Keep Them From Being Dry?

To ensure this biscuit recipe turns out moist and flaky, make sure you measure the flour correctly. I recommend using a scale. Adding too much flour will throw off the liquid to flour ratio, and the biscuits will become dense and dry. You don’t want to add extra liquid as it develops the gluten in the flour. If you don’t have a scale, then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off. Also, avoid over-baking the biscuits as they’ll dry out if they’re in the oven for too long. (Source: preppykitchen.com)

6 cups of flour

Homemade biscuits call for just six ingredients: all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, butter, and milk. And then more butter once they’re finished baking because of course, we need more butter. The butter and milk for this recipe need to be as cold as possible for fluffy and soft biscuits. I freeze my butter before using it and recommend keeping the milk in the refrigerator right up until it’s time to add it to the dry ingredients.

Visual clue: If you look at the pre-baked biscuit below, you’ll see that you can actually see the butter pieces in the dough. This is what you want, the ingredients won’t be well-combined like with cookie dough, and seeing bits of butter means you’ve actually done everything right here. Hooray!
