Biscuit Ball Preparation
1. Get a damp cloth ready to wipe your hands. Set aside.
2. Remove dough from the fridge.
3. Place the dough on a cutting board.
4. Cut dough into 16 parts; 1 for each biscuit ball.
5. Lay a 6" piece of saran wrap (or similar) on the counter.
6. Take one section of dough. Separate into 2 parts (one smaller than the other: 1/3 & 2/3)
7. Form the larger piece into a flat pancake. Place it on the saran wrap.
8. Add 1 tsp meat to the center of the dough.
9. Form the smaller piece of dough into a flat pancake. Place it on top of the meat. It should just cover the meat.
10. Lift the 4 corners of the saran wrap, pinch together plastic. The edges of the bottom layer of dough should overlap top layer of dough enclosing the meat.
11. Cup the ball in your hand to make a perfect round shape.
12. Refrigerate the ball.
