Drew's Homemade Biscuits
I met Drew a couple of months ago when he and his daughter walked into our house for one of Anne Scott’s petit four classes. He told me he was friends with Candice, and he followed Friday Night Porch Party on Instagram. We hit it off and visited about food throughout the class. Drew shared his favorite biscuit recipe with me that morning, and I tried it a couple of weeks later on a Saturday morning. Y’all, it’s so easy and so good! I must be honest and say I messed up the recipe the first time I tried it. I used a tablespoon of salt instead of sugar. The funny thing is my family loved the salt so I modified Drew’s recipe just a bit and added salt. I think it’s a great addition. One morning soon I want to freeze some of these biscuits before baking to see if they will work like the frozen biscuits in the grocery store. I’ll let you know how they turn out.
2 cups self-rising flour
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Gently mix all ingredients before transferring to a floured work surface. Knead just a bit and roll out the dough to about 1 inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter to cut the biscuits. Transfer to a greased baking pan. I use my cast iron skillet. Bake 12-15 minutes, and biscuits are golden brown.
