I've made this numerous times! It's my go-to recipe. Thank you so much, I absolutely love it.

I use self-rising flour in my cream biscuits all the time and I use self-rising flour all the time to knead them and my biscuits are never bitter. They are delicious.

These biscuits are quick and easy, but have very little flavor. I even added a little honey and topped with melted margerine, as suggested by one of the 5 star reviewers, but that didn't help. I won't make this recipe again as it is a waste of so much heavy cream.

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.

I followed the recipe as written and they were delicious; light and fluffy! Easy to make.

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!
