Quick Rustic Biscuits
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).
