Recipe Ingredients for Flying Biscuits

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoons sugar
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup half-and-half

Recipe Directions for Flying Biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

  2. Place flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Cut butter into 1/2 tablespoon-sized bits and add to the flour. Using your fingertips or a pastry cutter, work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal.

  3. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in all the heavy cream and half and half. Stir the dry ingredients into the cream and mix with a wooden spoon until dough just begins to come together into ball.

  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead 2 or 3 times to form a cohesive mass. Do not overwork the dough. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to a 1-inch thickness. The correct thickness is the key to obtaining a stately biscuit. Dip a 2-1/2 inch biscuit cutter in flour, then cut the dough. Repeat until all the dough has been cut. Scraps can be gathered together and rerolled one more time. Place the biscuits on the prepared sheet pan, leaving about 1/4 inch between them. Brush the tops of the biscuits with 1 tablespoon of half and half and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Bake for 20 minutes. Biscuits will be lightly browned on top and flaky in the center when done.

  5. Makes 8 to 12 biscuits, depending on the size of the cutter.
