Biscuit Tip:  When cooking most biscuits we recommend a hot oven temperature of 450 to 475 to help biscuits bake and rise quicker.  Knead biscuit dough as little as possible and get as many biscuits as possible from first cutting.

  1. I made these this morning. They were beautiful, fluffy biscuits but fell apart. They were okay for gravy but couldn’t butter them or put sausage between them. What can I do to make them hold together better? They are not sweet and taste great!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Maybe try kneading your dough a little Ann. I have not had this problem with these as you can see in the photo. Also, maybe cook a little less time.

  2. I am going to try this recipe sounds so easy I love butter biscuits with a slice of tomato.

  3. Judy Robinson says:

    It’s best to use self-rising flour.

  4. Kris Stokes says:

    Just made these. Fantastic!5 stars

  5. I have made biscuits alot,but never used sugar in the mix,are these biscuits sweet? Because with gravy I dont know how they would be..thank you

  6. I just took these out of the oven…they are superb! I didn’t have any self-rising flour so I just made some myself by adding baking powder and salt to all-purpose. Love these!5 stars

  7. Made these this morning but didn’t have any self rising flour so used Plain flour and baking powder. They didn’t rise very high but they really tasted light and fluffy and next time i make them i will buy self rising flour. They are so quick and easy to make. Thankyou for the recipe5 stars

  8. Shawn abunde says:

    I made the biscuits but instead of rolling them put and cutting them out I did them by hand they were ok but next time I’m going to do the the other way because they fell apart

  9. Shawn abunde says:

    I’m going to try these this week is there no kind of shortening or oil or lard in them? What makes them rise?

    • No, Shawn, there is no shortening or oil or lard. I made these this morning and I cut the sugar to 1 teaspoon and the cream to 1 cup. Mixed it with a spoon and my hands and it seemed to me they rose even higher this way. I could tell no difference in the taste by using less milk and sugar.

      • Judith H Lawson says:

        There is so much butter in the whipping cream that’s why you don’t need to add anything else. (There are videos on how to make butter from whipping cream.) I’ve been making these biscuits for a long time. So quick and easy. I think you might enjoy them.

  10. By the way, I tried your fluffy cream biscuits last night, and my family thought someone else had made them! They were terrific. I’m going to make this my “go to” biscuit recipe from now on… 🙂5 stars

  11. Hi There! I am new to your blog. I found you on Face book! These biscuits look wonderful. I never thought of using heavy whipping cream to the batter. I need to try your recipe. Being from the South myself….I love homemade biscuits 🙂

  12. These look beautiful and so simple! I’ll have to try these. thanks for a great recipe!

  13. I could eat that whole basket! Those look wonderful. And I like that there’s just a little sugar in the mix.
