Good Morning! I had a breakfast helper today– the “Mix it up” girl Lois (that is her only cooking vocabulary to date). We made biscuits for breakfast– tender in the middle and a little crispy around the edges. They’re not the prettiest biscuits, but so delicious! And then we sat down to eat them together with plenty of jam.
2 cups flour
2 tab. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking power
1/3 cup cold butter (2/3 of a stick)
1 cup whipping cream
In a mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Cut the butter into smallish pieces and then with a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in the whipping cream until you have a stiff ball of dough. Flatten the dough onto the counter and cutout circles with a large cookie cutter (or like my grandma with a drinking glass).
Set the cut biscuits (about 6 large biscuits) onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray and set them into a 400 degree oven for 15 to 17 minutes until they are nicely browned. Serve hot with honey or jam!! yummm!
P.S. They’d be perfect “shortcakes” to serve with strawberries and cream.
