Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 3-5 times. Roll out onto a lightly floured surface to about 1/2 inch thick. If you want high rise, roll out to one-inch thickness. (Baking time may be a little bit longer) Cut out with a 2 inch biscuit cutter or you can use a drinking glass as a cutter. Dip your cutter in flour before making the cuts to prevent sticking. Reroll scraps and cut those out. Place biscuits onto the baking sheet leaving space between and bake for about 10-12 minutes. Delcious warm.
