Amazing Flour & Cream Biscuits

Andy Anderson !


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.

How to Make Amazing Flour & Cream Biscuits


  2. Gather your ingredients.
  3. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to a large mixing bowl.
  4. Whisk to thoroughly combine the ingredients.
  5. Chef’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.
  6. Add the cream, and mix with a fork.
  7. Chef’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.
  8. Chef’s Note: If the dough is still too dry, add more cream, a tablespoon at a time, until the dough is shaggy.
  9. Place the dough on a lightly floured work surface.
  10. Knead the dough, just long enough to bring it together, about 20 to 30 seconds, and flatten out to about 1/2 inch thickness.
  11. Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 425f (220c).
  12. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits, and then arrange them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  13. Place in the preheated oven, and bake until nicely browned, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  15. Serve with something savory, such as: a chicken or beef stew… Or just slather on some preserves, or drizzle with honey. Enjoy.
  16. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
