The best part of the muffin is the top! The kids will love them! Started out as a William and Sonoma recipe however I made modifications. The only special equipment needed is a muffin-top pan, or they could be baked in english muffin rings.
This recipe is incredibly easy (and so tasty) to make because you don't have to cut in the fat -- it's already there in the cream. Recipe from The Gourmet Cookbook. Unlike traditional biscuits, cream biscuits benefit from relatively rough treatment. so don't be afraid to knead for 30 seconds.
NOTE: Be sure to use heavy cream, otherwise you'll be disappointed!
With recent success cooking with beer, I find myself obsessed with different types of dishes. The original recipe comes from Epicurious (Gramercy Tavern NYC) however I've modified to use candied ginger, which i usually have on hand
