1/1 Photo of Whipping Cream Biscuits
In a degree of difficulty, biscuit-making ranks pretty low. It does not require dealing with yeast, that unpredictable prima donna of the baking world. Moreover, you don't have to wait, with your hands folded in prayer, for the dough to rise. You simply measure ingredients carefully and work the chopped-up butter into the flour mixture. Next, you add the cream, kneading the mixture a few times until you get a dough that resembles more of a loose coalition than a smooth, uniform mass. Then you get to wheel out the rolling pin, the bulldozer of kitchen tools, which levels the mountain of dough into a praire about 1/2 inch thick. Next you get to cut the dough into little circles, plop them onto a baking sheet, toss them into the oven and 15 minutes later you have biscuits! This particular recipe for these biscuits was published in our local paper.
