Homemade Biscuits!

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 easy.

They're quick.

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.
