I've been on the hunt for a good easy biscuit recipe for a long time. While I don't know if this one is THE one, it's pretty close. These homemade biscuits bake up very nice and fluffy. Slather them with a big pile of homemade jam and some homemade butter and you are good to go.
Easy Biscuit Recipe
What you need:
- 2 c. flour + a little more
- 1 T. baking powder
- 2 t. sugar
- 1 t. salt
- 1 1/2 c. cream
- 5 T softened butter
Mix together all the ingredients. You may need a little more flour.
Don't knead the dough. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick. Cut it into biscuit shapes with a biscuit cutter or a glass cup.
Place the biscuits on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 425F for about 15 minutes or until slightly brown on the tops.
This recipe is so easy to make and the biscuits bake up light and fluffy. If you have leftover cream from this recipe make sure to freeze it up into Cream Cubes for later use! If using cream isn't your thing you can always try my Buttermilk Biscuits instead.
