Chef's Notes:

For tender, flaky biscuits, handle the dough as little as possible. When adding liquid to the flour mixture, stir just until flour is moist. Too much stirring makes biscuits tough. To roll out the dough, start at the center and roll in all directions (rather than back and forth) to ensure tender biscuits.
