Melt In Your Mouth Buttermilk And Cream BiscuitsFrom shepherdrescue 8 years ago
- 2 cups self-rising flour shopping list
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda shopping list
- 3/4 teaspoon salt shopping list
- 2 tablespoons sugar shopping list
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) COLD unsalted butter cut into small dime size pieces shopping list
- 3/4 cup buttermilk shopping list
- 1/2 cup heavy cream shopping list
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour for dredging shopping list
- Optional 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted to brush on top shopping list
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!
