I wish I could share these biscuits with every single one of you. They are so soft and fluffy, so much flavor. A cup of coffee is heavenly with them. And, they are absolutely amazing with honey. Or jelly. Or peanut butter. Or butter. Or gravy. Or… okay you get the point.

They fill my house with the most amazing smell when they are baking and I can hardly wait to pull them out.

We love these for a BBQ though. Or a picnic. They are so easily transportable. They compliment any spread of food so well. 

I always have an empty basket at the end of the meal, so I almost always make two batches. Plus, it’s wonderful to make enough for a few days of biscuits.

These homemade biscuits are the BEST Biscuits for a BBQ - they pair so well with any dish. They are so easy, soft, and can be on your table in about 20 minutes. They taste incredible with some honey, jelly, gravy or whatever you want to use with them.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups cake flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons frozen unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • all purpose flour for dusting your surface

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  3. Pour into a food processor, and add frozen butter. Pulse several times until it looks like loose crumbs.
  4. Put the dough back in the bowl and add in the heavy cream. Mix together until you form a ball. I used my bread hook on my stand mixer and it took only about 2-3 minutes on medium speed. Dough will be sticky.
  5. Flour your surface with the all purpose flour. Roll the dough into a rectangle about 1" thick. Fold that over and gently roll again until you have a rectangle about 1" thick. Again, fold over. Do this 5 or 6 times.
  6. Last time, roll the dough out until it's a rectangle 1" thick and using a biscuit cutter, can or glass, cut the dough into biscuits. (DO NOT twist your cutter to cut the biscuit. This causes the edges to crimp and the biscuit won't rise... simply press down and release.)
  7. Roll up the scraps, roll out to 1" thick and cut again until you use all the dough you can. I got 10 out of this batch, but some batches I can stretch to 12.
  8. Place the biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Notes

  1. Cut the butter before freezing to make it easier.
  2. If you don't have a food processor (mine broke recently and I made these while waiting for the new one), you can simply cut your butter into the flour using a fork or pastry cutter.
  3. If you want to change up the flavor a little, add a couple of teaspoons of herbs or add couple of pinches of spices into the dry ingredients.
