Tried this last night and it was AWESOME. I didn't have biscuit cutters so I just dropped the dough on a cookie sheet. the biscuits were misshapen but they were absolutely delicious! Totally soft at the center. I recommend starting with the minimum time then closely watching them for each additional minute.
