My sister-in-law Candace recently shared with me a recipe for some amazing biscuits. Like so amazing, you should stop whatever you are doing and make them right now! 

The recipe is from Paula Dean. You can find the Original HERE.

Candace calls them "Sister Wife Biscuits" because Paula is her wanna-be sister wife. haha

“Sister Wife Biscuits” (Cream Biscuits)

2 cups self-rising flour, plus more for dusting
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 500 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, and cream until the dough forms a ball. Turn the dough out onto a surface dusted with additional flour. Fold the dough in 1/2 and knead 5 to 7 times, adding just enough flour to keep dough from sticking to your hands. Gently roll out dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch biscuit cutter coated with flour, cut dough into biscuits.* Place on baking sheet coated with cooking spray, leaving at least 1-inch between each biscuit. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

When rolling out your dough, roll it thin, like 1/4-inch. Then fold it in half and roll again lightly. Cut and bake. When your biscuits are done, they pull apart perfectly with no cutting or crumbling.

Even if you don't try the recipe, try the rolling tip. It makes things so much easier!

It is weird to see no eggs and no baking powder. can you use regular flour and baking powder? I like the tip and will for sure try it. We like our biscuits best with gravy so an easy opening is nice for double the surface :-)

My self rising flower has baking powder and salt in it. But I don't know the proportions. I suppose you could try it but it would make me nervous.

I've only been able to make THESE biscuits, because of the self-rising flour...any time I've tried to make my own with all-purpose flour they come out like hockey pucks. If you make these--follow my Sister Wife. She has great knowledge. Self-rising all the way. :)
