How to Make the Best Bicuits

Begin by preheating your oven to 425 degrees F.

In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.

Pour into a food processor, and add frozen butter. Pulse several times until it looks like loose crumbs.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

Place the biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Tips for the Best Biscuits

Butter: Cut the butter before freezing to make it easier.

Food Processor: If you don’t have a food processor (this one is a budget friendly favorite), you can simply cut your butter into the flour using a fork or pastry cutter.

Flavors: 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.

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.
