The right baking goods—from measuring cups to mixing bowls—will do a batch of biscuits proud, every time.


Baking Sheet

Mixing Bowl

A wide, shallow bowl works best for mixing biscuit dough—you can really get in there with your hands to blend the ingredients and feel when the consistency becomes just right. This handmade glazed-clay vessel by M. Crow measures 10½ inches wide but just 4½ deep ($260;

Measuring Cups

These pretty and practical ceramic measuring cups by Casafina are handmade in Portugal. They nest for neat storage and are microwave-safe for melting butter, and the spouts help funnel flour or buttermilk right into the mixing bowl ($70;
