The party problem: Everyone knows warm biscuits are the best kind of biscuits, but that fresh-out-of-the-oven heat only lingers for so long.

The party trick: Make a DIY bread warmer.

Sure, you can buy a bread warmer at most kitchen stores — or you can make one. You just need some rice and a cloth bag. You can technically use a clean sock, but that might gross out some party guests, so we recommend buying a new bag specifically for this project (see suggested sources below).

Fill the bag with rice almost two-thirds of the way and tie the drawstrings closed. Right before it’s time to serve the biscuits, microwave the bag for a minute. Then, line a bowl or basket with a tea towel, put the heated bag in, and pile on the biscuits. Drape a second tea towel on top to keep the heat in and your biscuits should stay warm until people are ready for seconds.
