I got this from "Beard on Bread" many, many years ago. They're wonderful biscuits!

Directions

  1. Sift dry ingredients together.
  2. Fold in cream until it makes a soft dough that can be easily handled. (You may need to add up to a full cup of cream).
  3. Turn on to a floured board and knead for about one minute.
  4. I make these as drop biscuits: Take a large mound of dough (one heaping tablespoonful) and dip into melted butter.
  5. Arrange biscuits on a baking sheet spritzed with baking spray. Bake at 425 for 15-18 minutes.

These biscuits are super easy to make, always come out perfectly and use ingredients that are easy to keep on hand. For a REAL treat, try frying them in a little butter in a cast iron skillet (pat a little thinner before cutting); just like old times!

Tasty & quick recipe. I used 2 tsp baking powder, 'kneaded' the dough in the bowl, and pinched off biscuits, patted them into shape, and baked for 11 minutes @ 400F. They were high & light.
