Add the bacon, cheese and rosemary.
Make it into a lumpy, rough dough.
Then roll it out and cut 6 biscuits that are 3-inches in diameter.

Secrets of Perfect Biscuits
- Start with fresh ingredients. Old baking powder or baking soda can spell disaster for biscuits, so be sure that your ingredients are fresh.
- Knead the dough briefly.This is important, even if you are making biscuits from a baking mix. Work the dough with your floured hands on a floured board (it’ll be sticky – you need the flour to prevent it from sticking to anything). Your dough should look smooth, not rough, when you cut it, but you shouldn’t knead it more than maybe 10 times.
- Press the cutter straight down and pull straight up. The urge to twist is huge. I know. But if you twist the biscuit cutter, you seal the edges and prevent the biscuit from properly rising. Don’t do it. If you’re tempted, switch to fluted cutters!
