These are my families favorite biscuits. They puff up and double when baked, ends up like one biscuit sitting on another, so it is easy to separate them to fill. The only problem is, I don't know how to make them. I buy the dough frozen. Do any of you have a recipe that makes wonderful biscuits like these? I have a baking powder biscuit recipe that I use from time to time, but they just do not compare to the loftiness of these ones from frozen dough.

You might try increasing the baking powder. For some reason, it doesn't seem to rise as well as it used to. To get them to break easily in two, you knead them a little bit on a floured surface. By a little bit, I mean fold the dough over but don't mash it very much. You are sort of leaving a floured "seam" in your dough.

Turn out the dough and flatten it to 1 in thickness. Cut out rounds with a floured 2 inch round cutter. Keep spacing as close together as possible. Put the rounds on a baking sheet.

I know what you mean --for some reason anything with yeast in it or having to knead the dough, I just mess up!
