Spooned and leveled: Scooping a measuring cup into a flour container can result in much more flour than intended, which can affect the success of your biscuits. To get a more accurate measurement, use a spoon to lightly scoop flour into the measuring cup until it’s completely full. Then run the back of a knife over the cup to gently scrape off any excess.
