Cream Biscuits (only 2 ingredients!)

Would you believe me if I told you that these biscuits have only 2 INGREDIENTS?!?! I did not believe it when I found this recipe at The Country Cook, so much so that I just had to try it. I am a believer now! I do not know the “food science” behind it or why/how it works, but I do know they’re freakin’ delicious & easy!

 One of the ingredients is self-rising flour. I had never used it before now. Apparently, it already has everything in it; sugar, baking powder, salt, etc….. I googled it 🙂 Combine that with some heavy whipping cream and surprisingly you have warm, fluffy, dense, and utterly delicious biscuits in no time!

I will say that while nothing can come close to a real, homemade, warm buttermilk biscuit….. these cream biscuits are a great substitute for when you don’t have a lot of time but want some type of bread side with your dinner or with soup. By the way, these puffy & delicious little beauties are so good with soup. I would know because when I made these, I made them for the soup we were having for dinner. Try it! 🙂

Cream Biscuits (only 2 ingredients!)

Serving Size: 6 biscuits

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 500 degrees and prepare a cookie sheet with silpat, parchment paper, or cooking spray.
  2. Measure out the self-rising flour and put into a mixing bowl. Slowly add the heavy cream to the flour. Using a wooden spoon, gently mix together. You DO NOT want to over mix biscuits. You just want to mix until the dough comes together and forms into a soft ball shape.
  3. If the dough is too wet add more self-rising flour, a little bit at a time. If dough is too crumbly, add more milk a little bit at a time.
  4. Spray a counter top with cooking spray and dump your dough ball onto it. With your fingers, gently press the dough down to form a thick circle shape. Use a biscuit cutter to form your biscuits.
  5. Put biscuits onto the cookie sheet.
  6. Take the remaining dough and using your fingers form into another thick circle shape. Cut additional biscuits. Repeat until you get 6 biscuits.
  7. Brush each biscuit with some melted butter.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Brush the remaining melted butter over the tops of the cooked biscuit.

      Nothing beats a biscuit from scratch, but these things are actually good for only 2 ingredients. And, they’re a lot easier!

      you are welcome Liz 🙂 I know, crazy that it really can only be 2 ingredients. Not quite the same texture and richness as a regular biscuit, but in a pinch, they are delicious!
