These 3-ingredient Cream Biscuits are the easiest, quickest homemade biscuits you’ll ever make!
My baking friends, I am so excited to share these biscuits with you. Being a Southern-bred girl, I’m generally always excited about biscuits. But what makes these Cream Biscuits even more thrilling than usual is their amazing simplicity.
With just three ingredients, these are the quickest, easiest biscuits you’ll ever make. There’s no sacrifice of flavor with that short list of ingredients, as these biscuits are so, so tasty and wonderfully fluffy. Quick, easy, delicious… They are the magical unicorn of biscuits!
Now that we’ve established their awesomeness, let’s talk a bit about biscuit making. For this recipe, you just need a bowl and a spoon for mixing. As always, limit your mixing to the minimum amount needed to combine the ingredients. Too much mixing = tough biscuits. No kneading necessary.
No rolling, either. Just pat out the dough to about 1/2-inch thick and cut out the biscuits. If you don’t have a biscuit cutter, I highly encourage you to get one, as they are designed specifically for cutting biscuits. They’re relatively inexpensive, and they’ll last you a good while. I’ve had the same set of biscuit cutters for many, many years.
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself making a batch of these biscuits quite frequently. We love these biscuits for breakfast with a bit of fruit preserves. They’re also great alongside a bowl of soup or chili. For a little savory bite, add a few turns of freshly cracked black pepper to the dough.
