DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.
  • Spray an 8 inch round cake pan with cooking spray.
  • Combine next 6 ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Cut in shortening or lard.
  • Stir in buttermilk and cream.
  • (mixture will be VERY WET!) Let stand 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour remaining cup of flour into another bowl.
  • Flour your hands.
  • Drop a biscuit size lump of dough into the flour. I use a half cup measuring cup for this step. The "dough" is too wet to really pick up with your hands.
  • Cover with more flour.
  • Gently pick up lump of dough with your hands by sliding your fingers underneath it then lightly toss from hand to hand to remove excess flour and to roughly shape the biscuits. You are just basically coating the very wet dough with flour. Be gentle!
  • Drop into prepared pan.
  • Repeat with remaining dough, placing tightly into pan.
  • This is so they rise up instead of just spreading out.
  • Brush with melted butter or margarine.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Let cool in pan a few minutes, then dump pan out and gently separate biscuits.
  • Serve ASAP!
