Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  • Spray an 8 or 9 inch round cake pan with "Pam for Baking" spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the self-rising flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
  • Add the cold butter.
  • Using your fingers or a pastry blender, work the mixture into small peas size pieces.
  • Stir in buttermilk and cream and let the dough stand for 2 minutes. It will be sticky and wet. Do not add more flour!
  • In a small bowl add about half of the all purpose flour, flour your hands as well.
  • Using a larger spoon, so you'll have biscuits about the size of a good sized lemon, scoop a lemon sized lump of the dough into the flour.
  • Gently coat it with flour, shake off the excess and again, gently shape into a soft round.
  • Place in the prepared pan, making an outer circle of biscuits and one or two in the middle.
  • Bake at 500 degrees for 5 minutes.
  • LOWER the oven temperature to 475 degrees and bake the biscuits for about 17 more minutes until very brown. I start checking on them after about 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, brush with melted butter if desired while still in the pan.
  • Let rest in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out and enjoy!
  • Fight off other family members so you get your fair share, you did bake them after all!

    Oh I don't like people that forget I'm a diabetic and force me to fail in my attempts in having it controlled (even if they say I'm a doll!)
    Nice ones. 8 from me.
