  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter {cold}
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Mix the dry ingredients together.  Using a pastry blender {or two knives} to cut the butter in to the dry ingredients until it resembles pea size crumbs.

  2. Add the milk/heavy cream at once, mix until you have a soft dough.  On a flat surface pat the dough out to about 1/2"-3/4" thick.  Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter {being sure to cut straight down through the dough and bringing the cutter straight up}.  Put biscuits onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

Recipe Notes

  • You may need to add a little more milk if the mixture is too dry.  Add 1 tablespoon at a time until you have the desired consistency.  
  • You can pat the scraps out and cut more biscuits but the dough will get tough the more you work with it.
