3 Ingredient 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:
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.
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.
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.
Making these to go with supper tonight…I got a biscuit cast iron pan for Christmas so I was going to drop them in the individual rounds and bake them that way. 🙂
These look great and simple! Thanks for sharing! I have made square biscuits before but have not shaped them into round balls afterwards. I l like that.

I think I would like to try these with some gluten free flour to see how it works. Made these for years just like recipe above. Totally addictive!
I made these for my husband and he loves them…he said better than his mother’s biscuits. ..shhhh

Have you ever made these with the melted butter poured over them prior to baking as you do with your Cisco biscuits?
Sounds wonderful, but I cannot eat dairy products. What can be used in place of the cream? Thank you!
Since they’re cream biscuits, the cream really can’t be substituted. I’m sorry!
CAN I SUBSTITUTE BUTTERMILK FOR THE HEAVY CREAM?
I don’t have enough heavy cream. Will it be ok to add some whole milk, too?
