  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour and cream just until blended. You should have a sticky dough. Use a large spoon to scrape the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead the dough once or twice, then pat or roll out to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into circles using a biscuit cutter. Place on a baking sheet, spacing 1/2 inch apart. If you like drop biscuits, you can skip the this part and just drop spoonfuls of the dough onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the bottoms and tops are golden brown, about 15 minutes.

  • You may also cut out the biscuits and then place them in a freezer bag. Freeze for later use. Baking will take an additional 5 to 10 minutes.

These were very moist and very rich biscuits. They needed a bit of salt though for flavor. They almost tasted buttery, I guess because of the cream. They didn't rise much though and were a bit flat, but they were good for just eating plain. They were very delicate and didn't hold up to splitting and would not be suitable for a biscuit sandwich. Easy recipe though and only 2 ingredients!

I've been aware of these easy biscuits for many, many years, but never bothered to try them until today, when I had an opened carton of heavy cream I wanted to put to good use. I brushed them with melted butter before baking them at a higher temperature than the recipe instructed, 425 degrees. When I pulled them from the oven I gave them a sprinkle of California Garlic Salt. I had low expectations, but I was more than surprised, in a positive way, with the outcome. These were some of the softest, fluffiest, most tender biscuits I've ever made.

Halved recipe. Made 1 c of self-rising flour by adding 1.5 t baking powder and .25 t salt to all-purpose flour. Easy!

With only two ingredients I was somewhat concerned about how these were going to taste. These were excellent. The dough was a stiff dough that I had to actually use my hands to mix, but most people use their hands to mix stiff doughs like breads and biscuits. Try these biscuits, you'll like them, and you can dress them up and make them sweet or savory.

I make homemade biscuits several times a month using self-rising flour. However, you need to add shorting or oil. I put 2/3 cup canola oil or coconut oil along with 2 cups of SR flour. You mix it with the flour until the mixture looks crumbly like corn meal. Make a hole in the middle of the mixture and add the heavy cream all at once. Stir until the dough is formed. Procede as this recipe instructs. I never buy can biscuits. If you don't have self rising flour you can add 1 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon of baking powder to all purpose flour and follow with the oil and other ingredients. Additionally to make scones add 1/2 cup sugar and raisins. I hope this is helpful to someone.

These are delicious! I didn't expect so much from two ingredients (well. OK, 4. I had to make my self rising flour with 2c flour, 1T baking powder and 1/2 t salt). I had visited a farmer friend and gotten milk from his cows. There was lots of cream on the milk which I skimmed off. So I was looking for a recipe to use it up. I made drop biscuits. The batter is somewhat 'sticky'. The biscuits are very tender yet crispy outside. I am planning to make more and freeze the batter in 'drops'. YUM! (also made butter to put on them. Heaven!)

This is a great, easy to use recipe. I usually add a tablespoon or two of chopped fresh parsley or other fresh herbs to use with creamed chicken over biscuits. This is the best way to make biscuits!
