Cream Biscuits

Total Time:
15 min
5 min
10 min

10 to 12 biscuits


Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, and cream until the dough forms a ball. Turn the dough out onto a surface dusted with additional flour. Fold the dough in 1/2 and knead 5 to 7 times, adding just enough flour to keep dough from sticking to your hands. Gently roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch biscuit cutter coated with flour, cut dough into biscuits. Place on baking sheet coated with cooking spray, leaving at least 1-inch between each biscuit. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

    These biscuits are AMAAAAAzing! Paula you did your "thang" on these babies!
    OMG!!! I am not a baker, and let me tell you, I loved these biscuits and so did my family. So easy you cant go wrong. If I did them, you certainly can too. Thank you Paula, Love You and God Bless
    The best, and easiest I've ever made. I used 1/2 and 1/2, and had all purpose flour so I had to add 2 tsp of baking powder, and 1 tsp of salt. they are awesome, and I've tried several recipes. Thanks Paula, you are the best as always.  
    These biscuits are awesome!! So easy to make. My family, and I love them. Thanks Paula!!
    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!best biscuits I have had in many years. Thank you Paula. Easy, delicious, melt in your mouth. I am a 'from scratch' baker from way back, so at first I had doubts. But I was proven wrong. Did not need a mixer an in 5 minutes they were in the oven. I did however add a pinch of salt but try them out. You will not be disappointed
    I've made a couple of biscuits in the past but these were the only ones my entire family loved. These were so easy and so good, will be making again.
    I loved skipping the part where you normally have to combine the butter and flour. They tasted great, but I miss the flakiness
    These are amazing and so easy to make. I have never had any luck making homemade biscuits but these turned out perfect! Can't wait to make them for my family.
    I always thought that making biscuits was hard, this recipe is wonderful, easy and good, i can describe the flavors, my kids went crazy just honey and whipped butter you got the perfect biscuit, thank you Paula ;!!!
    Recently Had To Re~Do Recipe & It Works! Non~Fat Evaporated Milk For The Cream Is The ONLY Change. Cut Into Squares & NO WASTE Or "Tough" Biscuits Rolling Out "Scraps" Of Dough.If Desire A Higher Biscuit "Pat" Out The Dough In Place Of Rolling & Cut & Voila`!
    Wow! I never thought I'd give any kind of rating let alone a 5 star one on a buscuit recipe. I have been baking for over 40 years and I love it. however, I've NEVER been able to bake buscuits that you couldn't play hockey with. I thougt I'd try this as a last resort because it was different from any I'd seen. Now my baking skills finally seem compleate. For now anyway.Till my next challange, THANKS!
    OMG! I have FINALLY found a biscuit recipe! These biscuits are hands down the best I have ever made. I have been testing biscuit recipes for the past 6 weeks trying to find one to call my own and that actually tastes good, stays together and rises! I did tweak the recipe after reading 12 pages of the reviews. What I did: added 1/2 tsp Baking Powder, pinch of salt, at first only used 1 cup of cream then added about 1/4 c to get right consistency (review Paula's video on making these only kneaded/folded over 2 times, put on baking sheet lined with parchment paper, then put in freezer for 20 minutes, then baked at 450 for 12 minutes - brushed melted butter over tops when out of oven. Absolute heaven with butter & honey, or preserves. My husband REALLY liked these biscuits - which says a lot since he usually doesn't throw out awesome when eating food. Thank you Paula for this recipe! I am one happy girl! :
    Thanks for another winning recipe Ms.Paula! They were so light and fluffy, tasted great with the smothered chicken we had for supper tonight. I can't wait to have the rest with breakfast in the morning.
    These were great! We made them for Christmas and they turned out light and fluffy. They melt in your mouth. Don't use a mixer; just hand knead them a few times, roll them out and bake! We made them again!
    Easy. Don't use a mixer and don't knead them or they'll be tough. I'll be making these again!! Tomorrow!!
    I used my KitchenAid for mixing and that was super easy. The biscuits were good, but not awesome. They were a little dense and not so light - I think I may have overmixed. I will try again
    Don't use a mixer its too much for these awesome biscuits.
    So Quick & Easy. I made my own self rising flour, used the full amount of heavy cream, and brushed with butter. I may try to bake @ 500 next time instead of 450. They didn't brown to much.
    Extremely easy to make and light in texture.I poured the heavy cream in gradually while mixing at the same time. Dough comes together very nicely and requires very minimal kneading. Handle as little as possible. After reading several reviews I also put biscuits in refrigerator prior to baking. Then baked(on parchment paper at 450 degrees for 12-14 minutes. Great for quick breakast item!!
    So simple. So delicious. Just be sure not to work the dough too much.
    Perfect biscuit for breakfast!!
    I've NEVER successfully made biscuits before this recipe. Thank you Paula, you never disappoint!
    These were the best and easiest biscuits I ever made 
    I'm so happy to have found a good recipe I did add 2 tbl  
    melted butter in place of 2 tbl of the cream and I also added 
    A half tsp salt just delicious thankyou Paula I love biscuits
    Absolutely delicious! All my other attempts at biscuit making always produced a hard, hockey puck biscuit. Not these, they are light and tender. I read thru all of the reviews, and decided to replace 2 tablespoons of the heavy cream with 2 tablespoons of melted butter for flavor. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder; 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda; 1/4 teaspoon of salt to my self-rising flour, just to make sure that the biscuits would rise, as I live at a high altitude. I only kneaded the dough once, after removing the dough from the bowl and then patted it into a circle with my hands. I didn't have a biscuit cutter, so I used an empty, washed out metal can with the lid removed for cutting the biscuits. These are quick, easy and delightful to eat! Thanks Paula!
    These biscuits are quick, easy and ooo soo delicious! Light and fluffy and full of flavor.
    Paula's biscuits on their own are derned fine, but If you add a smidge or two of minced fresh rosemary along with 1/2 tablespoons of black peppercorns that you whacked the heck out of, you know this is served in heaven.
    These are the BEST tasting biscuits I have ever made. I had to make my own self rising flour by adding salt and baking powder but still easy. Thank you for the recipe.
    I absolutely love these biscuits. So fast and easy. I always make sure I keep my hands floured  
    to fold & knead the sticky dough without adding too much extra flour. It might mention this in the recipe, but once I roll out my dough, I then fold it before I cut the biscuits out. This makes them rise tall and easily split in half for butter, jelly, or biscuit sandwich.
    they are delicious! I think Cashita did not use the self rising flour like the recipe called for this person needs to try them again!!
    best biscuits i've ever made and the hubby and kids loved them too... thanks paula for making biscuit making easier and more cost effective for me
    I have always been biscuit challenged and sort of gave up. Then I tried these biscuits. Awesome !!!! These are the easiest biscuits to make and they are very tasty and tender. They come out looking just like the picture Followed the recipe, and even made them on a rainy day and they came out perfect. I had to make a second batch because we inhaled them !!!!! Thank you Paula. xoxoxoxoxoxo
