Tonight was “quick and easy” dinner night. I wasn’t going to blog about it but as we were eating the biscuits, I changed my mind. These biscuits are delicious, soft, pillowy, quick, and easy to make. Mike is not much of a biscuit eater (???) and even he loved them!
This particular recipe calls for heavy cream instead of butter or shortening. How cool is that?! No “cutting in” necessary here, just stir with a wooden spoon.
I learned later (after reading the recipe correctly) that the dough benefits from a good 30 second knead time. My biscuits would have risen higher had I not used such a light hand (that’s how they differ from other biscuits). Anyhow, regardless of my little slip up these babies are yummy and soft and breakfast just got a whole lot easier around here to boot.
I got the recipe from this book: America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook
