I've found the best method for me. Roll the biscuit dough out into a rectangle. Use my sharpest knife and cut them into squares, then put them on the baking sheet...
SQUARE biscuits?! Why that's just not ... RIGHT!
Roll out the dough once. Cut with your ROUND cutter of choice (drinking glass, fluted cutter, whatever) trying to fit the circles together the very best you can.
Pick up all the in-between-bits and lay those on the pan and bake with the other perfect biscuits. Use them as cook's snacks and/or feeding hungry little children who are having a hard time waiting for dinner ...
