Believe it or not, the concept of making biscuits in a bread machine is a tad misleading. While the bread machine takes all of the work out of mixing your ingredients, the biscuits themselves must still be baked in the oven.
Despite the somewhat misguided concept, making biscuits in a bread machine can significantly cut back on the amount of time you have to spend in the kitchen. Try it for yourself and find out!
Place all of the ingredients in the bin of your bread machine. Place the dry ingredients in first and then add the liquid ingredients.
Put the machine on the dough setting and allow the dough to mix and process.
Remove the dough from the bread machine after the dough setting ends and place it on a floured surface.
Roll the dough on the floured surface until it is approximately ½ inch thick.
Use a circular cookie cutter to cut your biscuits.
Butter a cookie sheet and place the cut biscuits on the sheet.
Let the sheet sit until the biscuits have risen to double their original size.
Put the biscuit tray on the middle rack of your oven. Make sure the oven is COLD.
Turn the oven to 425 degrees F and allow the biscuits to bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
Carefully remove the biscuits from the oven, allow them to cool slightly so that you do not burn yourself and serve them while still warm!
Do not preheat your oven before placing the tray inside.
Always use protective gear, such as oven mitts or potholders, when removing trays or pans from a hot oven.
