Cream Biscuits

Oh heaven, I've found you. I made these one Sunday morning as my first ever attempt at biscuits. They were easy and very very delicious. Give them a try!

I got the recipe from Emeril on

You'll need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar, plus more for sprinkling on top
1 teaspoon salt
1 to 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Slowly add 1 cup of the cream, stirring with a rubber spatula, to form a smooth dough. Add up to 1/2 cup additional cream if mixture is too dry, being careful not to overwork the dough or the biscuits will be tough.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and pat into a square, about 3/4-inch thick. With a 2-inch round biscuit or cookie cutter, cut into 12 circles, gathering the scraps and gently patting out again, if necessary. Dip each round into the melted butter to coat on all sides. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and srinkle the tops with a little more sugar. Bake until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot.

As you can see, I just cut them into squares so I wouldn't have to do anything extra. They were tender and awesome!
