May 29 is National Biscuit Day.

I read the above post by Foodimentary and decided I would share a super simple biscuit recipe by Tammy Algood.

For these you will only need two ingredients, a rolling pin, biscuit cutter, and a baking sheet!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 cup whipping cream

Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 425
  2. Stir together ingredients until just combines, DON’T OVER MIX!!!!! This is so important when baking, over mixing certain items can cause them to not rise while baking!
  3. Place dough onto a floured surface (so it won’t stick) knead as few times as possible, I say no more than a dozed times but try to do it three of four times. take your floured rolling pin and roll dough out to 1/2 in thick. use biscuit cutter (or cookie cutter, or empty can, or glass, etc.) push straight down and lift straight out, don’t twist! If you twist the biscuits won’t rise!
  4. Grease your baking sheet, place biscuits about 1/2 in apart and bake for 10 minutes.

If you choose to make large biscuits (4 in or larger) you’ll want to lower the baking temperature to about 400 and increase baking time to 15 minutes, roughly. ¬†For smaller biscuits just decrease cooking time. These times and temperatures are estimates, all ovens vary so use your knowledge of your oven when cooking!
