My Favorite Biscuits

I'm not known for making pretty biscuits, but that has changed since I stumbled on to this recipe that I had written down on a piece of paper some time back.  I'm pretty sure it's from "Down Home with the Neely's".  I have now sworn off those canned biscuits!

Many of you don't like to bake with yeast, this biscuit recipe has you covered, no yeast.  Just three simple ingredients and you have some luscious biscuits for breakfast or as a side to soup for a light lunch or a hearty accompaniment to your fried chicken and mashed potatoes.

My Favorite Biscuits -

2 cups self rising flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1½ cups heavy whipping cream


Mix all 3 ingredients together until dough forms a ball. Using your stand mixer with the dough hook, makes this a snap.  Turn out onto floured surface and knead for about 1 minute. Roll dough out to ½ inch thickness and cut biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a Siplat or greased baking sheet and bake at 450F for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown.

Hint:  I don't buy self-rising flour but found this handy substitution!  For each cup of self-rising flour, use one cup of all-purpose flour and add 1-1/4 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/8 teaspoon of salt.





They actually look like real biscuits and not blobs of dough.

 



They are just crying for butter!

 

This one was calling out to me.



How can you say no?

These are wonderful cream biscuits-I don't buy self rising flour either, so I'm glad for the substitute. Must make these this week end!

Oh my... I am suffering from a bad case of the afternoon munchies and these look amazing!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh how I love biscuits.... I'd rather have a biscuit anyday than a roll or other bread..... I've never heard of using heavy whipping cream though... My recipe uses buttermilk!!!!!

I may just have to try this recipe...

Thanks so much.
Hugs,
Betsy

I make mine the same way, except that I don't roll them out. And sometimes I reduce the cream by 1/4 cup and add one egg. And I don't use self rising flour either; why have another container in the cupboard to confuse me?

Cheryl said...

I have only made biscuits twice and they were ehhhhh. I like this recipe and they are beautiful!

Julie said...

No, I'd never say no to one of those!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

Katherine, thanks for the tip on how to turn all purpose flour into self rising flour. I don't like to keep both kinds on my shelf.

Your biscuits look wonderful and easy to make. They would be good with Larry's country ham that he fixed the other day.
