Biscuits spreading too much

I've been working on a recipe for biscuits and also researching the effects of baking powder vs baking soda (many thanks to Kenji on this site for clarifying the subject.) The past two times that I've made the biscuits they have started spreading out while baking. I've placed them 1" apart, used frozen butter and worked rapidly so that the baking powder and baking soda wouldn't loose their "gas". This has just started happening the last two times I've made the biscuits. Any suggestions.
