Super light and fluffy biscuits. No cutting in of fat, rolling of dough. Requires light kneading, just until dough holds together and sort of feels like bread dough.

Recipe Ingredients for Cream Biscuits

1 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 tablespoons minced fresh herbs
3/4 cups heavy cream

Recipe Directions for Cream Biscuits

  1. Mix all ingredients until dough holds together.

  2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and herbs in medium bowl. Add 2/3 cups cream and stir with wooden spoon until dough forms, about 30 seconds. Transfer dough from bowl to countertop, leaving all dry, floury bits behind in bowl. In 1 tablespoon increments, add up to 4 tsp. cream to dry bits in bowl, mixing with wooden spoon after each addition, until moistened. Add these moistened bits to rest of dough and knead by hand just until smooth, about 30 seconds.

  3. Shape the dough into a round, 3/4-inch thick. Following the illustrations below, cut into rounds with a biscuit cutter or cut into wedges with knife. Place rounds or wedges on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through baking.
