What's in it
2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Dash of salt
5 tablespoons cold butter, cut into slices
3/4 cup light cream
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
How to cook it
- Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium size mixing bowl. Using a pastry blender, add the butter and cut into the flour mixture until it resembles a coarse meal. It’s okay if you have small chunks of butter, that’s what you want! Cover and chill for at least 10 minutes.
- Once chilled, add in light cream and sugar and mix until just combined. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead about 4 times. To roll them out, use a rolling pin and roll out to about the size of a 9 x 5 rectangle. Then fold the dough, vertically, in thirds. You should have a thinner, taller rectangle of dough. Roll dough back out to a 9 x 5 rectangle and then fold again crosswise in thirds. Then, roll the dough out to about 3/4 – 1 inch thickness. Using a small circular cookie cutter (or 1/3 measuring cup dusted with flour) cut out biscuits.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and lightly grease a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place biscuits about an inch apart on the baking sheet and bake for 10 – 12 minutes, or until they’ve puffed up and are golden brown. Serve immediately and enjoy!
