I wish I didn't love it -- but I do! Bread! It's amazing!
I especially love the homemade kind. But let's face it. Homemade bread, regardless of the kind, always seems to be so time consuming. That's why I love these biscuits.
They're fail-proof. (Maybe I should say, "fool-proof!)
They only need 2 ingredients.
You can have these for dinner tonight!
2 cups self-rising flour*
1 cup heavy cream*
In a large bowl, combine the flour and cream. I mixed mine in my stand mixer with the dough hook. Turn out onto a floured surface; knead for 5 minutes or until no longer sticky.
On a floured surface, roll dough into desired thickness, at least 1/2-in. thick. Cut into 3-in. biscuits.
Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.
*Self-rising flour is really a short-cut! If you don't have it, then add 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt to 2 cups all-purpose flour. Viola! You have self-rising flour!
*I discovered that it took a bit more cream than 1 cup -- I added an extra 1/4 cup at a time until I had a nice and sticky looking dough before I started kneading it.
|My biscuits! I cut mine a little larger and ended up with 8 delicious, flaky biscuits.|
