How To Make Cream Biscuits

Makes 8 biscuits

What You Need

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream (divided)

Equipment
Parchment paper
8×8-inch metal pan
Mixing bowl
Liquid measuring cup
Measuring spoons
Dough cutter or large knife

Instructions

  1. Prep and preheat: Place a layer of parchment paper across the bottom and up 2 sides of an 8×8-inch pan. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients until combined.
  3. Add the cream: Pour in all but 1/4 cup of the cream. Stir until the dough is shaggy, then add the remaining cream and stir to combine.
  4. Knead the dough: Turn the dough out onto a well-floured work surface. Knead the dough for about 30 seconds, just until it all comes together.
  5. Form the dough: Shape dough into a rectangle, about 12 inches long and 4 inches wide. Cut it in half lengthwise, then cut each piece into 4 pieces horizontally. Place each of the pieces in the prepared pan.
  6. Bake: Transfer the pan to the oven, and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden.
