TWD: Sweet Cream Biscuits

This week’s recipe from the Tuesdays with Dorie baking group is Sweet Cream Biscuits. It was chosen by Melissa of Love At First Bite. If you would like the recipe, click here to visit Melissa or turn to page 23 in Dorie’s book, Baking From My Home to Yours.

If you need a very quick biscuit recipe, this is truly perfect. They bake up beautifully, nice and flakey, plenty of rise, and the best part? There’s only one wet ingredient, heavy cream! I love that you don’t need butter plus milk. Most biscuit recipes need a fat, like butter, and milk. So heavy cream makes complete sense, it’s milk before all the fat has been removed.

I was going to save some for breakfast, but they were all eaten at dinner. This is a short post with only one photo as I made them to go with dinner tonight and there were 5 impatient mouths at the table.

An all around great recipe, probably the easiest since I started with TWD over a year ago. Enjoy!

    Definitely easy and good! Just like my favorite scone recipe, so when I see scones with lots of butter, I wonder why when they are perfect without it. Same with these biscuits. I'm pretty sure the biscuit recipe I used to make (don't make them very often) had shortening.

    Lovely biscuits – they rose beautifully! Mine were pretty flat, but still tasty and the recipe is easy enough that I can try again sometime.

    Looks like they rose beautifully. I have made them twice and they get a little higher, but not like yours.
