    Sounds good.I was just reading in Better Homes and Garden an article about making biscuits and the recipe used chilled buttermilk.Stated don't twist the cutter.Twisting seals the sides,preventing biscuits from rising as nicely.

    Also stated tp pricking the dough with a fork before baking allows steam to be released during baking and helps the biscuits rise more evenly.The picture showed pricking the dough w fork once it is rolled out and before cutting.
    Just thought I would pass the info along.
