My mother-in-law calls these her “No Fail Biscuits,” and for us – they really are. It takes about 5 minutes to mix them up and 10 to cook. Best of all, there are only TWO ingredients.
Preheat the oven to 450. You’ll need 1.5 cups of good quality self-rising flour (I like King Arthur) and 3/4 cup of heavy cream or whipping cream.
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl until you get a kind of sticky dough that holds together in a ball. Adding 1/4 tsp. of salt is optional.
Now, you can pat the dough out and cut perfectly round biscuits from it, but to save time I just grab balls of dough right from the mixing bowl and pat them quickly into rounds using my hand. Not perfect, but easy and fast!
I arrange everything on an ungreased baking pan. Our cast iron flat Lodge griddle is great for even heat distribution and easy clean-up (it’s pre-seasoned). I also like that the exposed sides of the biscuit get a little bit browned.
Bake for 9-11 minutes and remove when they are lightly browned on top.
Enjoy with butter, jam, honey, fried chicken, whatever you like!
Here’s a printable version:
- 1.5 cups self-rising flour
- ¾ cup cream (heavy or whipping)
- ¼ tsp. salt (optional)
- Preheat oven to 450
- Mix all together. If dough doesn't come together readily dribble in an additional 1 to 2 tablespoons cream to make it totally cohesive.
- Roll or pat out dough ¾ in thick and cut with biscuit cutter
- Place on ungreased sheet pan and bake 9-11 minutes or until lightly browned.
