And I will never again stray. These are the PERFECT biscuits. They are what all biscuits SHOULD taste like. They are what biscuits should STRIVE to be. I made them (again) the other day and took some to my Dad.
"What are these?" he asked.
"You tell me" I said..
"Well...*taking a bite*-it's flaky, buttery, good mouth feel, this is a BISCUIT!"
I FINALLY got the Dad-biscuit approval!
And...I finally LOVE biscuits!
Biscuits (barely changed from the recipe linked above)
2 cups self-rising flour
1 stick of butter
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
Cut the cold butter into the flour until it looks crumbly. Add whipping cream until it comes to a good dough texture (not too dry, not too sticky). Lightly roll out on a floured surface, cut and bake at 400 until golden (about 10-15 minutes).
My biggest biscuit test..the day after test (aka if they are edible and good the day after) they pass. So even though I make a half batch of Moogie's recipe-you can easily eat these ALL week.
Go make some biscuits kids!
