basic sunday morning biscuits

Made some homemade biscuits for us on a sunday morning. Husband claimed they were the best biscuits he's ever tried. We cooked up some scrambled organic eggs then spread some butter and jam on the piping hot biscuits and hoovered it all in 5 seconds flat.


- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoon butter, cubed
- 1 cup heavy cream


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. In an electric mixing bowl fitted with a paddle mixer, add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cubed butter and mix in low medium speed for about 4 minutes, until mix looks like cornmeal. Put the speed to low and add 1 cup of heavy cream and mix just until combined.
3. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter, or in this case, I used an upside down cup.
3. Place in baking pan and cook for about 20 minutes or until the top portion is golden brown.
