  4. When all the flour has been added, transfer the dough on a floured surface and knead it a few times.

  8. Place the biscuits on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake at 330F (170C) for 10-15 minutes or until the edges begin to turn golden brown.
  9. Remove them from the oven and let them cool in the pan then store in an airtight container or a ziplock bag.
