- Looking at the original recipe, you don't want the dough to be too thick in the pan so that it will form the right sized boats. As all biscuit dough is not created equal, you may have to bring out the inner mad scientist for a minute or two. The dough in the recipe appears to be about 1/4" thick in the cups and they don't reach all the way to the top. If the biscuit size you're using gives you more dough than that, pull a glop off and reshape the dough in the cup. Later you can combine all the extra "glops" into biscuits so dough isn't wasted.
- If you don't want to be the mad scientist, buy the Jr. size or cut the regular biscuits down by about 1/2.
