    Galley Wench's Note:

    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!

      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.
