Scratch Cream Biscuits

by Jessica on February 26, 2008

Another first for me. 🙂 I totally wasn’t looking for these, but I noticed a post on the WC board about using leftover whipping cream. Turns out I had some… and it was the exact amount that these biscuits called for. What a coincidence. 🙂

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk dry ingredients together in medium bowl. Stir in the cream with a wooden spoon until the dough forms, about 30 seconds. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured counter and gather into a ball. Knead the dough briefly until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Pat the dough into a 3/4-inch thick circle. Cut the biscuits into rounds using a 2 or 2-1/2″ biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on the parchment-lined baking sheet. The baking sheet can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to 2 hours, if need be. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Yields: 1 dozen 2″ biscuits.
