Good thing you can make fluffy biscuits with just two ingredients, most likely already available in your pantry.

It’s perfect for your dinner proteins and a filling side for your breakfast plates.

The only ingredients you’ll need?

First, you will need heavy cream.

Prepare a cup to a cup and half of your favorite heavy cream brand as this will make a perfect substitute for your butter, milk, and shortening.

The other is flour.

You’ll need two cups of sifted self-rising flour. You have different options for this one but this recipe uses the unbleached version.

Remember that this recipe needs sifted flour. You’d be surprised to see the stark difference between sifted and normally scooped flour.

Since scooped flour is much more packed and dense, it can actually contain around 20% more flour. This can affect the texture of your final product.

Next, incorporate your ingredients carefully.

Make a well in the middle of the bowl of flour. Slowly pour in your heavy cream and fold the flour in.

You don’t need to mix vigorously as it can take away the air from your flour.

You don’t want your dough to be dry and you don’t want it too runny either.

If you have experience in making biscuits, you want your dough to have a similar consistency. You can also see the screenshot provided.

Shape your biscuits however you want.

You can either scoop it out as is with a spoon or you can roll them out. Dust your surface with flour so your dough won’t stick.

Press your dough until you get your desired thickness. Remember not to overmix your dough because it can result in tougher biscuits.

Using a cookie cutter, divide your dough into portions.

Pop them in the oven.

According to the video, there are crafty ways to help your biscuits turn out the way you want them to.

First, you can place them closer in your cast iron pan to make them higher.

Space makes for crispy biscuits.

You can also set them farther apart if you want to have crispier biscuits.

Preheat your oven to 450°F.

Baking time will take around 10 to 12 minutes. You can use this time to take a quick break or prepare other dishes.

Just add in a few more finishing touches before serving them.

Hold and brush a stick of butter over the biscuits until they’re beautifully glazed. This will keep your biscuits moist and soft and will give them a delectable aroma.

And that’s about everything you need to do to make these two-ingredient biscuits. You can serve them alongside some eggs, bacon, and syrup.

They’re also a perfect side for that homemade crispy fried chicken.
