Reading cookbooks is a favorite pastime and has been almost my entire life. With the explosion of Pinterest, nowadays I don't buy nearly as many cookbooks as in the past still but have thousands of recipes I'd like to try! A couple weeks ago there was quite a bit of ham left from Easter dinner so it seemed like a great idea to make a batch of biscuits to eat with it. Into my Pinterest boards I went to find a recipe...
This was the perfect opportunity to test out White Lily self-rising flour and decide for myself whether it was fact or fiction about it's magical powers when it comes to biscuits.
Of course, being on the west coast in California it wasn't easy to find White Lily... until I thought about ordering it from Amazon. Bingo! It did cost about $10 for a bag of flour but it arrived in 2 days and I was off and running. Or should I say baking...
There is really no complicated recipe for these- it's literally 2 ingredients (with additional melted butter if you'd like). Preheat oven to 500 degrees. No, that's not a typo. In a bowl, stir together 1 3/4 cups self-rising flour and 1 cup of heavy cream. That's it! Turn the sticky dough onto a floured board, fold twice and pat out to about 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a biscuit cutter (cut straight down and DO NOT TWIST). If you'd like, you can brush the biscuits with melted butter before baking. Bake on a sheet pan for 8-10 minutes. Period. Get ready for the best biscuits you've ever had!
Light as a feather, the crumb of these are unbelievable... they melt in your mouth.
OK, I'm fully on board the White Lily train...
biscuits with ham, biscuits with butter, biscuits with jam, biscuits with honey, the possibilities are endless. mmmmm.
