TWD: Sweet Cream Biscuits

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie was a nice change — instead of the usual sugary treat, we did Sweet Cream Biscuits, which worked out really well because I was able to make them to go along with dinner last night! The recipe was chosen by Melissa of Love At First Bite.

These biscuits are a spin on a traditional baking powder biscuit and use heavy cream and a bit of sugar, but no butter or shortening. There’s a very light sweetness, and with a pat of butter they were the perfect addition to last night’s dinner of pork chops and mashed potatoes.

My pint of cream had a little leftover after I used the one cup necessary for the biscuits, so the girls poured the leftover cream into a glass container and made butter for the biscuits while dinner cooked! 😀

Anyway, these were delicious and I’ve got the recipe bookmarked now so I can get to it quickly when I need a side for dinner.
