These baking powder biscuits are flaky, tender, and rich. If a breakfast or dessert biscuit is desired, just add more sugar to taste.

    This is a great recipe. I cut the recipe in half and it made 5 biscuits. Had no biscuit cutter, used a glass instead. I also used buttermilk instead of the heavy cream. Wonderful for strawberry shortcake. This will be my go to recipe from now on.

    This has been my standard go to biscuit recipe for years! I don't make strawberry shortcake any other way. Thank you!

    I omitted the egg, and used the same measurements as the written recipe (didn't watch video) and these came out perfect! These are a favorite.

    Very fattening as written, but I am sure they are to die for! You can also use buttermilk instead of cream to get great results w/o so much fat. Brush with melted butter instead.
