biscuit cutter [bis-kit kuht-er] noun
A tool similar to a cookie cutter, although with a much greater depth, used to separate dough into biscuits.
Cookie cutters are usually short in height, since cookies do not usually have much depth. Biscuits, on the other hand, should be tall and flaky, so they need a deep cutter to accommodate their size. Look for a cutter that is at least 2 inches deep. Pictured is a White Lily Flour biscuit cutter with a wonderful sharp edge. (White Lily
flour has an especially low protein content and makes fabulous biscuits).
