Flying Biscuits

Ingredients:

3 cups flour (such as White Lily)
1 and 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons salt
2 and 1/2 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons butter at room temperature, cut into bits
2/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup half and half
2 tablespoons half and half for brushing on top of biscuits
1 tablespoon sugar for sprinkling on top of biscuits

Directions:

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar and work in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Make well in center of flour, pour in cream and half-and-half, and mix just until dough begins to come together into a ball. Knead dough 2 or 3 times on lightly floured surface and roll to 1-inch thickness. Cut dough with biscuit cutter. Place 1/4-inch apart on sheet pan lined with parchment paper, brush with half and half and sprinkle with sugar, and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes until lightly browned. Makes 8-12.

Sat on the stools in the corner of the bakery next door to the Flying Biscuit Cafe and devoured these so called “biscuits.” The Flying Biscuit Cafe sells a recipe book stuffed full of great sounding food which I flicked through while we munched, but a lot of the ingredients had me baffled and it used cups for measurements. ?? 🙁

Am beginning to piece my knowledge of the neighbourhood together, will totally forget it all on my next return though.
