Light Cream Biscuits
photo by Late Night Gourmet
- Ready In:
- 2 cups self-rising flour
- 1 cup half-and-half
- Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
- Mix flour with half-and-half until combined. The mixture will be sticky, which is normal.
- Turn out dough onto a heavily-floured surface. Fold dough over on itself, dusting with flour as needed to keep it from sticking. Knead several times in this manner.
- Roll dough out into a 1/2 inch thick sheet. Use 3 inch ring mold to cut circles out of the dough. Place on baking sheet covered with non-stick cooking spray.
- Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Serve while hot with butter or honey.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I have two teenagers who keep things very busy around our house during the daytime. I also work long hours at Ford Motor Company, and I do want to spend time with my family every day. If I try to cook when my kids have their friends over, I'm certain to be interrupted. In other words, my available times for cooking are very limited. I don't want to give up on anything I love - my family, my job, my cooking - so I do most of my cooking after everyone has gone to bed. My wife is a teacher, so this can be very late at night during the summer. Sometimes, I don't get started with my prep work until 12:30 a.m. Am I crazy?? Maybe. I'm also constantly working on healthier ways to prepare food. I deconstruct every recipe I like, and try to make it with healthier ingredients. The big challenge is keeping the food tasty. I believe it's possible to enjoy what you eat and still be healthy. I lost 15 pounds in 6 months largely by preparing my own food (and exercising). If I didn't keep such loony hours, I'd call myself "The Healthy Gourmet".
