Easy Biscuit Recipe for Two

Make this easy biscuit recipe as a special treat. Let’s see, butter and heavy whipping cream, but a light hand. What’s not to be flaky?  Add a heart shape and brushed butter on top. I can smell them fresh from the oven now.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 T unsalted butter, melted and divided
  • 1/2 C self rising flour
  • 2 T cold unsalted butter, cut into 12 pieces
  • 3 1/2 T cold heavy whipping cream

 

Instructions

To prepare the butter, cut into pieces and return to refrigerator until needed. This helps to produce a flaky biscuit.

Pre-heat oven to 450 F.

Brush 1 T of the melted butter over a 6 in. square area on a baking sheet and set aside.

Sift the flour into a bowl.

Cut butter pieces into the flour using 2 knives. (Crisscross the knives through the butter.) If needed, use a fork to cut through any lumps which are larger than a pea.

Sprinkle cold whipping cream over the flour mixture. Note: Don’t dump the cream into the dough.

Mix with a fork until the dough begins to hold together. If necessary, add 1/2 T more of cream.

Flour your hands (use disposable vinyl gloves as well) and knead the dough 6 times while still in the bowl.

Lightly flour a cutting board and place the dough on the flour. (I use a sheet of freezer paper, glossy side up, right on the kitchen counter instead of a cutting board.)

Form dough into a rectangle about 1/2 in. thick.

If you’re making these for your Sweetie, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter and cut out 3 to 4 biscuits. Otherwise, use a different cookie cutter or just cut into 4 pieces.

Place biscuits on the baking sheet.

Bake 10 minutes or until a golden brown.

Use the remaining melted butter to brush the tops of the biscuits while they are still warm.
