biscuit cutter and bowl

This dough does not roll out to be cut like typical biscuits. You can use your hands to shape portions of the dough into biscuit-sized disks and place them on the lined baking sheet.

I find that the easiest way to do this, is to use a muffin (ice cream) scoop and scoop out the dough onto the baking sheet. Then simply press it down into a disc with your fingers. The biscuits should not touch each other.

The texture of these biscuits remind me just a touch of a pecan sandy cookie on the outside, but inside they are airy and tender.
