3 Ingredient Cream Biscuits

Cream Biscuits

Biscuits always have been one of my favorite foods.  I’ve been infatuated with them ever since I was a little girl.  I mean, my Mama makes the best biscuits you could ever imagine – so they were imprinted in my soul since the very beginning. Usually, Mama made buttermilk biscuits – but sometimes, she’d make another type of biscuits… Cream Biscuits!

And boy, are they delicate & delicious!

Other than the obvious delicate nature of them – I think my favorite part is how incredibly easy they are.  With just 3 ingredients, you’ve got a fresh batch of homemade biscuits on the table.  And, if you want to make them even simpler…. you can just drop the dough by spoonfuls to make drop biscuits.  Super duper easy!

Here’s what you need:

3 Ingredients Cream Biscuits

Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine 2 cups self rising flour, 1 tablespoon of sugar, & 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream.

3 Minutes Cream Biscuits

Now, you can skip these next step and just dollop spoonfuls of biscuit dough on a baking sheet, and bake on.  Or – you can make them a little prettier with my Mama’s easy fool-proof method which involves a pizza cutter.  Yep, a pizza cutter. 

Just plop your dough on a lightly floured surface – and gently pat it into a free form rectangle.  Like so.

3 Minute Cream Biscuits

Using a pizza cutter, slice the biscuit dough rectangle clear down the middle.  (I use this same method in Mama’s Buttermilk Biscuits, which are also fool-proof by the way).  Then start slicing the other way to make little biscuits squares.

You could just leave them as squares – or you could take each square biscuit and make it circular by gently rolling the sides of them a little with your hands.

Place the biscuits on an ungreased baking sheet – although I do like to give mine just a light spray of non stick cooking spray 🙂

Bake at 500 degrees for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.

3 Ingredient Cream Biscuits


  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1½ cups heavy cream


Preheat your oven to 500 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, & heavy cream together.

Drop the dough onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a free formed rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough in half lengthwise, and then slice it the other way making little biscuit squares. You can make them circular by rolling each biscuit side between your hands if you like.

Place a couple inches apart on a baking sheet & bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown, in the preheated oven.

Drop by spoonfuls on a baking sheet, bake for 10 minutes or until slightly browned.
