Denise’s Easy Biscuits

Because everyone should just make their biscuits from scratch!  It’s not hard to do and they taste so much better than store bought or the pop open can stuff.  Just whip up some flour, baking soda, butter and cream and voila!  Hot soft biscuits that practically melt in your mouth.

Denise’s Easy Biscuits

2 cups flourimg_3116

1 tbl baking powder

1-2 tsp sugar

½ tsp salt

Pulse in food processor a couple of times to mix.

Add in 6-7 tbl unsalted frozen butter cut into small cubes

(I slice cube into 8 slices then quarter each slice, reserve one slice for the tops of the biscuits.)

Pulse butter just until the butter has become small pea size bits in the flour.

Add approx. 1-cup heavy cream – add slowly while pulsing until mixture loosely holds together.

(DO NOT mix too much on the food processor or the dough will get rubbery.) Spill out onto floured surface and knead just a few times. Then fold the dough 2-3 times so that they will split in half easily once baked. Press out to ¾ inch. (I just use my hands) Cut out with cookie cutter. (or just use a drinking glass to cut them out)

Place biscuits close img_3113together on baking sheet for softer biscuits. At this point I add a tiny bit of the leftover butter onto the top of each biscuit. I have even been known to sprinkle a tiny bit of sugar.*

Bake in 450 degree oven for 15 min or until light brown on top and fully cooked inside.  Makes about 8 biscuits.

*Another add-in can be orange peel at the same time as the butter is being added in the food processor
