Yep, you read correctly, homemade biscuits using only two ingredients! All you need is cream and self-rising flour. The fat is in the cream, and the self-rising flour provides the salt and leavening. It can't get much easier than this! These biscuits were so much better than the baking mix in a box version, but just as easy!
Cut biscuits with a 2-inch cutter. (Next time I think I'll use a 3-inch cutter; these were a bit too small.)
Place biscuits close together on a lightly greased (no greasing necessary on my stoneware!) baking sheet.
Bake 10 minutes until golden brown. Add butter and ENJOY! We sure did!
Whipping Cream Biscuits (Tammy Algood: cookbook author)
2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup whipping cream (I had heavy whipping cream on hand)
Preheat oven to 450 degreesF. Combine flour and cream in a mixing bowl, stirring just until blended. (The dough will be a little stiff.) Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead 10 times. Roll to 1/2-inch thickness and cut with a 2-inch cutter. Place biscuits close together on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Makes 12 biscuits.
