For fresh biscuits that are ready for any meal, try this! All you need is about 10 minutes of time and 5 ingredients. I've got here in my bowl, 3 cups of all-purpose flour; and to my 3 cups of flour, I'm gonna add 4 teaspoons of sugar. After the 4 teaspoons of sugar, goes 4 teaspoons of baking powder, and then a teaspoon of salt. I like to whisk these ingredients together, just because it gets `em really well dispersed. And then, add 2 cups of whipping cream. Rather than having to knead this biscuits and roll them out, this recipe is so simple, because you just stir it all together. The dough's gonna get fairly firm here, but once you have it all well mixed, I'm going to use a scoop to form the biscuits. Here I've got a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. I'm just gonna make mounds of biscuits on my sheet. You don't have to leave very much space in between your mounds at this point, because you're not gonna bake `em right away. Once I get all of my biscuits on the baking sheet, you're gonna want to pop that in the freezer, and it takes about an hour or two to get the mounds nice and firm. And then, so I have more room in my freezer, I'm gonna take my mounds off the baking sheet and put `em in a large plastic bag. When you're ready to bake your biscuits, just take `em out of the freezer. Straight from the frozen state, you're gonna put them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. And if you don't have parchment paper, you can use foil. And here, you wanna leave a couple inches between the biscuits because they will spread. And there's no need to try to flatten the biscuits at all. They'll bake up really nicely. What I like about this recipe is that if you have a smaller family, you can pull out 4 or 6 biscuits at a time. You don't have to bake `em all at once. Now, you can have fresh from the oven taste, anytime.
