I've made this recipe several times and love it. My husband love my biscuits when I make it with this recipe. Yesterday, we were having a Super Bowl weekend special Saturday breakfast (yeah, it's a made up event - lol) and these biscuits had to be on our special menu. But this time I changed it a bit. I used "self-rising flour" with 1 T sugar and heavy whipping cream, taking out the baking powder and salt. It came out GREAT. They were so soft and moist. Was soooooo good with sausage gravy on top.

Whoa GW; Another winning recipe. When we got up this morning DH said "I'd really like some biscuits" well, I didn't feel like a major project just then so went searching for something easy. This sounded almost "too" easy but decided to give it a try. Only thing I did differant was cut it in half for the 2 of us but now wish I didn't as would love some left overs for tomorrow. Soooo good, easy, and rose nice and high. They were nice and fluffy, with a great taste. This WILL be made often.

I just made these biscuits for dinner tonight with sausage gravy. I was a bit skeptical about a biscuit recipe with no butter or shortening but they came out perfect....and soooooo easy!

These biscuits were lovely! I wanted to make a simple biscuit to go along with some minestrone soup for dinner and these fit the bill. I had some leftover cream and thought I'd try something new...very easy to put these together and the result is flaky, tender, perfection. they were in the oven in less than 10 minutes.

Add my Kudo's to the rest. This is the quickest, easiest biscuit recipe that I've ever made (and I've made some biscuits in my time!). They rose up tall and lovely with the lightest texture ever, almost powdery light. Very good taste too. Absolute winner of a recipe. :D

This is my go-to, quick biscuit recipe. We never buy Bisquick and even have used this recipe in place of refrigerated biscuits for casseroles w/great results. I rarely use cream or even half-and-half, subbing whole milk instead. Comes out great every time!

My Husband and I like this recipe. The biscuits had a good flavor. Although they didn't rise very much. Thank you for the recipe.

These biscuits are super easy to make and have a delicious taste! They are light and soft and really, really moreish! :)
I made half the recipe ending up with 7 large biscuits, which were gone in a flash. I didnt need all of the cream, but that might just have been due to the damp weather.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us, Galley Wench. Made on recommendation of 4-H-Mom December 2010.

These were the lightest, flakiest, biscuits I have ever made. I made sure I did not over knead them and I made 3 times the batch listed and added 1 qt of cream instead of 3 and 3/4 cups. I baked for 12 minutes and brushed them with butter before I baked them. I divided the dough equally into 3 balls and patted each ball into a square about 1/2" to 3/4" thick and cut the square into 9 square biscuits. I did this to keep from overworking the dough which toughens biscuits. I also made sure I sifted the flour to get the lightest biscuit possible. I taste- tested finished biscuit with sausage gravy recipe 14911--EXCELLENT!!!! Definitely will make these recipes again.

Tender, light, moist biscuits, where have you been all my life! And such a snap to make. I pressed them into a cake round and then cut them into wedges. Love, love, love these biscuits!
