My Garlic Cream Biscuits are light, fluffy, and melt in your mouth. Pair them with fresh cooked bacon and a smear of bacon gravy and you have an appetizer fit for the best of games.
- 2 Cups Self Rising Flour *See note
- 1 +1/2 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
- 2 tablespoons bacon grease
- 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1 cup milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- In medium bowl, stir together flour and garlic. Add in cream and stir until it forms a stiff dough.
- Pour out onto floured surface and press into a ball with hands.
- Press out flat and then bring it into a ball again. Repeat this four times to knead.
- Using a rolling pin, roll out to 1/2 inch thickness.
- Using a biscuit cutter or juice glass dipped in flour, cut out biscuits.
- Place on greased baking sheet and bake at 450 for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned on top. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter, if desired.
To make Bacon Gravy
This gravy is meant to be a little thicker than usual in order to be able to smear biscuits with it.
- Place grease in small skillet, add flour.
- Stir over medium heat until flour is browned.
- Reduce heat to low and whisk in milk. Stir constantly until gravy thickens and no lumps remain, 7-8 minutes.
- To assemble biscuits, cut each biscuit in half and top with freshly cooked bacon and a smear of thick bacon gravy. Serve warm.
*To make your own self rising flour, simply add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt for EACH cup of all purpose flour.
