Yes I did mean "ado". I think the spell check must have corrected it by mistake. Thanks for the pointer - have corrected the same.
Yes I seemed to have missed out on mentioning the water. I apologize for overlooking it. Have updated the recipe. I will surely try this one out again and update the recipe if required. Thanks for your patience.--DK
Dear Priya, from what I can think of, its not the yeast that's the problem per se. If you used rapid yeast, simply add them straight into the flour mixture (no need for proofing) but make sure to use lukewarm liquid to make the dough. Did you let it rise well? May be you baked for long the first time? Oven differ from one to another - try baking at a lower temperature and check. I think second time you probably took it out earlier. Simply reduce the oven temp from 400 to say 350 or so and bake for a little longer - or else keep at 400F but bake for less than 20 minutes. Its all trial and error as far as Oven's go! Hope this helps:)
They indeed are - however hard they are to believe :) Let them huff and puff and use a big biscuit cutter and yours will give the store bought ones - run of the money :)
