February 2, 2013 – Either I'm too slow, or it's just too hot at the moment, but my roll of dough would quickly become warm and soft. The first few would come out lovely and round, but then it would get messy quite quickly. In the end, it was easier to just use teaspoons to scoop some up and press them flat.
Make sure you don't take them out until the edges have darkened. They have a much nicer texture that way. They are lovely biscuits though! Very morish.
