I want quick breads, I just bought a too big can of Baking Powder and need to get it used, and quick breads are not as chewy as yeast doughs.

Still learning how to eat!
I was thinking of a kneaded biscuit dough, not drop biscuits. I can't really imagine kneading it with all that stuff in it.

I thought of biscuit dough because I saw someone on TV do some pinwheels with Pillsbury biscuits and meat loaf.

Why not drop biscuits? It's easier and they are pretty.

I think it is prettier rolled up.

You knead biscuit dough? Even with rolled out bicuits, I've never kneaded it. I try to work the dough as little as possible so they are light and flakey.

I like drop biscuits, very fast and easy to clean up.

Well, I don't knead them very much. I do use lard and a mix of 3 parts soft flour to 1 part hard flour. It seems to work for flakey biscuits.

I use lard and unbleached AP flour, a touch of kosher salt, baking powder, cut in the lard until I have pea sized pieces, then using my fingers, squish it through till I have lots of flakes, lightly mix in milk or buttermilk just until moistened. Pour out on board and roll out, cut.

Gosh, I had to think about it, been awhile! I do pie pastry the same way, of course no baking powder and I use ice water instead of milk.

If using Bisquick, the recipe says, knead 10 times.

I love drops biscuits. Like Princess said "less cleanup" I'd hate to have to clean up after rolling out biscuits, plus I don't even own a rolling pin or suitable alternative like a piece of PVC pipe.

I never made drop biscuits. Any TnT scratch recipes for drop biscuits. I don't buy Bisquik.

BTW I don't roll and cut biscuits because after the first roll and the more they are handled the tougher they get. I just push the dough into a rectangle and cut rectangle biscuits they taste the same but tender. One cutting with the bench scraper, no dirty cutters or rolling pin!

Now I want sausage bread!! I may just buy a tube of Pillsbury pizza dough instead of homemade dough. It's not to bad in a pinch. Or Trader Joe's pizza dough.
