From blog post: Cream Biscuits, and Three Things to Do With Them


May 8, 2012

  • Makes: Makes 8-10 biscuits.


3 cups all-purpose flour

2 Tbsp. sugar

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

2 cups heavy (whipping) cream

extra cream or milk, for brushing (optional)


1Preheat the oven to 400F.

2In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. If you like, add a handful of grated sharp cheese, some fresh or frozen berries, chocolate chunks or other additions. Add the cream and stir just until the dough comes together. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough a few times, then pat into a circle about an inch thick.

3Cut into wedges and transfer onto a parchment-lined baking sheet; if you like, brush the tops with milk or extra cream and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm.
