Making Quick Rustic Biscuits

This is a quick five (5) ingredient recipe that excites me and completes any meal. I love this particular biscuit because it can be so versatile with little effort! It can be a great accompaniment to hearty stews, a great topping for a pot pie or even for a peach cobbler.

I have used it both ways, it is delectable. Making it all the more appealing cause from start to finish it is less than twenty-five (25) minutes.

Bonus - you probably already have all these ingredients in your kitchen cupboard. No need to make a special trip to the grocery store. Or time waiting for it to rise, knead and roll out. Here are the ingredients you will need.

1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour

2 tsp of sugar

2 tsp of baking powder

1/2 tsp of salt

1 cup of whipping cream

1 tbsp melted butter (optional)

Putting it all together:

1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

2. Stir cream and butter into the dry ingredients.

3. When well combined, shape 8 mounds of dough by hand.

4. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet, 1 each apart.

5. Bake at 375 degrees in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

Serve warm with butter, fruit or jam. Makes 8 biscuits. If you want more just double the ingredients to yield 16.

For cheesy biscuits stir in 1/2 cup of  grated cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup of  grated parmesan with dry ingredients before adding cream.

For a peach cobbler topping add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 tsp of cinnamon (stir in wit dry ingredients) and 1 tsp of vanilla (pour into the cream).

Try all of these versions of this Quick Rustic biscuit and tell me what you think.

Enjoy!
