Every proper southerner loves biscuits in every form or fashion.
Clearly, I am not a proper Southerner. I would much rather eat (and bake) a yeast roll or French bread or a muffin. But I DO love my grandma's and my mom's biscuits!
My mom told me she would show me how to make my Granny's biscuits, but I'm not sure. Something about dumping ingredients randomly into a bowl bothers me. Fortunately, my mom has a real recipe for biscuits that is delicious and easy!
2 c flour
1 c heavy cream or half and half
mix everything together till just combined. Pat out on a floured surface. Cut into circles. Bake at 475-500 for 10 min.
Tips: 1. Do not overmix or overhandle, or biscuits will be tough.
2. When you the dough is on the floured surface, don't get much extra flour in the dough.
