These biscuits are wonderful as little sandwiches for ham slices, breakfast biscuits with sausage gravy, or serve along with soups or stews. They're great tasting biscuits, and they're very easy to make and bake.
They take very little time to mix and bake, but plan an extra 30 minutes for the biscuits to rise a bit.
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yield: Makes 10 to 12 Angel Biscuits
- 2 cups all-purpose flour, 10 ounces
- 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid rise or instant yeast
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Mix well with a whisk to blend ingredients thoroughly.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the heavy cream. With a fork, mix until all ingredients are moistened. Turn out onto a floured board and knead 3 or 4 times to form a soft cohesive dough.
Pat into a circle about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick and cut out with 2-inch biscuit cutters.
Arrange on the baking sheet and cover with a dish towel. Let rise for 30 minutes in a warm, draft-free place.
Brush tops lightly with melted butter.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned.
If desired, brush with more melted butter while they're hot.
Makes 10 to 12 angel biscuits.
Serve these delicious biscuits with any main meal or holiday feast, or serve with ham slices for breakfast or lunch. These biscuits could also be used for strawberry shortcakes, or use them (unbaked) to top a chicken pot pie.
