Ingredients

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flour and cream. Turn out onto a floured board; knead for 5 minutes or until no longer sticky. On a floured surface, roll dough to a 1/2-in. thickness. Cut into 3-in. biscuits. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450° for 8 to 10 minutes. Yield: 9 biscuits.
Editor's Note: If you don't have self-rising flour, add 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt to 2 cups all-purpose flour.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

"Delicious and so fast and easy! I used the editor's note and added baking powder and salt to my flour. Thank you, Diane, for sharing this recipe. I used it to accompany a tuna casserole."

"I have made these biscuits twice. I used Jovial Foods Einkorn flour, added the 1 Tbsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt since it is not a self rising flour. However it is a "soft" flour as is needed for biscuits. The result was a delicious, high, and light biscuit!"

"Not sure how this recipe is as just a biscuit, but I use it all the time for a quick pizza crust, and everybody loves it."
