Make these easy and fluffy cream biscuits using just a few ingredients and have them ready in under 30 minutes!


2 cups self-rising flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 475º F.
  2. Mix together the flour, sugar, and cream in a medium bowl until they are a solid mixture.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, begin kneading the dough while continuing to fold it in half and knead it back out. Repeat 5 times.
  4. Roll out dough to accommodate 8 biscuits, about 1/2-inch thick.
  5. Using the lid of a wide-mouth mason jar or biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place on a degreased or parchment-lined sheet pan.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Once golden brown, remove the biscuits from the oven and place on a cooling rack.
  8. Serve immediately or let cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Seal in a freezer bag and freeze them for up to 6 months.


Omit the sugar when using these biscuits for savory recipes. Substitute self-rising flour with 2 cups all-purpose flour, 3 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp finely ground salt.
