I haven’t made these biscuits in years, but this morning I got the urge and dug out the recipe. These are super easy to make, and taste awesome straight out of the oven.

They have two basic ingredients… cream, and flour.

They’re perfect for that lazy Spring morning, outside watching the sun rise. Serve them with some preserves, or just drizzle with some fresh clover honey… so yummy.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

5Chef’s Note: Do not use self-rising flour… It already has salt and baking powder added to the flour. I have tried using self-rising flour and then eliminating the baking powder and salt from the recipe, and although it does work, they have more of a cake-like taste.

7Chef’s Note: Since these are made without butter, you need to use heavy cream. You could try using half & half or regular milk; however, you won’t achieve the same results.

8Chef’s Note: If the dough is still too dry, add more cream, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough is shaggy.
