TWD: Sweet Cream Biscuits
Sweet Cream Biscuits are this week’s recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie, as chosen by Melissa of Love at First Bite.
Although biscuits seem innocuous enough to make, I’ve often found them to be quite a challenge. It has actually taken me several years to get the hang of it. Pretty much, my problem was always, without fail, overworking and handling the dough too much. It always results in a ‘hockey puck’ type of biscuit that just really doesn’t appeal.
Since I got my copy of Dorie’s Baking book I have actually made these biscuits several times. I really love how they turn out, tender, flavorful and light with just a little sweetness. I love how easy they are with skipping out on the process of cutting the butter or some other type of fat into the flour mixture. It seemed a little sketchy at first to just mix in heavy cream, but after some thought, and the fact that heavy cream, when beat long enough turns into butter
, really started to make a lot of sense.
Our favorite way to eat biscuits is just with some soft butter and homemade jam. Yum!
