When Emily posted this recipe I was intrigued. A biscuit without butter seems foreign to me, but it was something I wanted to try. I’m so pleased that I did. Of course I added butter to the top though; I couldn’t really have a biscuit without butter 🙂 If you give a Melissa a biscuit she’ll want some butter to go on it.
These are pictures from my old camera. Can you tell? Even after Photoshop they feel dark and a little unfocused to me. So grateful to be working with something new.

Recipe from One Lovely Life
Makes 8-10 biscuits

2 cups flour
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup cream (I don’t think milk would work here)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in cream until everything comes together into a dough, without over-mixing
Turn out onto floured counter and press dough to 3/4 of an inch thickness and use biscuit cutter, metal canning ring, or a floured cup rim to cut biscuits. Pat together remaining dough to form as many biscuits as possible. Bake on a stone or heavy baking sheet for 12-15 minutes or until golden.

    These biscuits were very light and fluffy….I enjoyed their “light” flavor too……he didn’t. A healthy plop of butter inside made them extremely yummy! I only had 1 cup of cream, so I added a 1/4 cup of 2%. Didn’t seem to be an issue. Now I know how to use up the cream I might have accidentally hanging out. A brush of butter on the top, a pinch or two of black pepper or even some fresh herbs mixed in next time…..he won’t have a clue! Thanks for a yummy recipe!!
