Just for reference, here is my biscuit recipe. Its pretty forgiving in terms of doubling or tripling.

2 cups flour
4 tsps baking powder
1/4 cup butter
2/3 - 3/4 milk
shake of sugar
shake of salt

Blend like pastry, then add the milk til dough sticks. Either cut out with a glass or make biscuit "blobs". This makes about a dozen small biscuits.

my recipe:

4 c flour
2 heaping T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 c butter
1 1/2 c milk

combine dry ingredients. cut in butter until the largest pieces are about the size of a pea. add milk all at once and fold in with a fork until dough just comes together. turn out onto well floured surface. give 2 or 3 gentle kneads to form a ball. pat out to about 1/2 to 3/4 inches. cut out to 2 1/2 or 3 inch circles. place touching in a baking pan with 1 or 2 inch walls. bake in preheated 425 degree farenheit for about 12 to 15 minutes.

not your standard technique, but since i prefer flakier bistcuits, i pat it out quickly to about 1 inch thick, cut into quarters, stack them, and repeat another 2 times or so. most people just pat it out once, which gives a more crumbly, cakelike result. for cobblers, i add some sugar & enough milk to make it just barely pourable (also, only about 1/2 the above recipe).

good luck

let me make sure that wine's ok before i use it.
