Make These Two-Ingredient Homemade Biscuits and You Won’t Regret It

Warm biscuits are a perfect way to start the morning. They also make for a fantastic afternoon snack, one that's adaptable to whatever you're craving at the moment — whether it’s jam, cream, butter, eggs, cheese or anything else you want with your biscuit. As much as they might love a homemade biscuit straight from the oven, most people don’t want to spend time cutting the butter into the flour, then mixing in the liquid ingredients. It’s just too much work, especially if you have active toddlers to contend with. You could just crack open a can of biscuits and call it a day, but sometimes you just want that homemade taste. The good news is that there's an even simpler way to make biscuits, one that involves stirring just two ingredients — self-rising flour and heavy whipping cream — into a dough, which you then shape into biscuits. After all, butter is just cream that’s been beaten to death, and heavy whipping cream meets the requirements for both the fat and liquid, all in one ingredient. Self-rising flour is just flour with baking powder and salt added right in, which lets you skip adding those ingredients as well. So, here you go…..and you’re welcome! 



1 ½ cups self-rising flour 

¾ cups heavy whipping cream 

Optional: A little bit more salt, up to ¼ tsp, for a slightly saltier biscuit 



Preheat the oven to 450°F. 

Stir the heavy cream and self-rising flour into a dough. 

Shape the biscuits and drop them onto a pan that’s been coated with baking spray or covered with parchment paper. 

Brush the tops of the biscuits with a little heavy cream. 

Bake the biscuits art 450ºF for 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Depending on how big you like your biscuits, this recipe will make 6-8 biscuits.
