Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a medium bowl, stir together all ingredients just until the dough forms a ball and ingredients are moistened.
  • Turn the dough out onto a work surface that is dusted with a very small amount of additional flour.
  • Fold the dough in ½ and press down with the palms of your hands; knead the dough this way for 5 to 7 times more, adding just enough flour to keep the dough from sticking to your hands and work surface.
  • Gently press dough out to about 3/4" thickness; cut dough into 3” size rounds (use a cookie cutter or a small juice glass).
  • Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and place biscuits on it, leaving at least 1” between each biscuit.
  • Bake at 480 degrees (yes, a very hot oven!) for about 10 minutes, until golden brown on bottoms and tops.
  • You need to watch them closely at the end so you don't burn the bottoms - they require a hot oven, so don't try to reduce the heat.
  • Just keep an eye on them and when the tops are nicely golden brown, the bottoms should be, too.
  • If you forget to check them and you end up burning the bottoms (and I HAVE done this!!), just cut off the bottoms of the biscuits and they will be fine to eat!
  • Note: For holidays, try using different cookie cutter shapes, like hearts, holly leaf, etc.

    I finally made biscuits! This is my first successful biscuit. These were so light and fluffy! I think I could have taken mine out at 9 minutes. They were a bit dark on the bottom. I will definitely make these again. I added a couple of pictures and gave this a thread in IMI. Also commented in Lovebreezy's biscuit thread (link below). 12/7/13

    I love biscuits---these sound perfect--can't wait to try them, krumkake! :) I make smoked ham gravy w/biscuits, b/c I don't like sausage... on some Sunday mornings. :)

    Oh, these are good, Krum. YOU are absolutly correct,they won't be fluffy without the heavy cream. Super biscuits and easy too. This has my name written on it for sure, gotta make biscuits soon. Thanks, dear.
