When I was young, my mom would make these biscuits with fresh cream she got from a local farmer. I don't go to those lengths anymore, but the family recipe is still a real treat. —Beverly Sprague, Baltimore, Maryland

"I learned how to make these biscuits years ago. I like to knead mine for 30 seconds or so, pat the dough into a circle and cut. To make them even quicker, use an equivalent amount of self-rising flour instead of regular flour and omit the remaining dry ingredients, except the sugar. If you're going to use self-rising flour and decide to knead the dough, use regular flour to knead, otherwise the biscuits will taste bitter."

"I made these but I tweaked them just a smidge. I added some honey to the heavy cream and mixed it all together and after I dropped them on the pan i brushed them with melted butter. And i also brushed them with a little melted butter as soon as they came out of the oven. They were divine!!!! And seriously only took 5 minutes to throw together!!! I will definitely make these again!"

"You have to use HEAVY whipping cream not regular whipping cream or there will not be enough fat for flavor."

"Is there an ingredient missing? I threw the batch away after everyone in my family had one bite. They were bitter. I am thinking there needed to be butter or fat cut in to provide flavor and make them less like flour and water baked in the oven. I followed the recipe exactly, and so i don't think the error is mine, but maybe!"
