Mile High Biscuits

From "Stop and Smell the Rosemary" cookbook.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder(reduce to 2 tsp at 8500 ft)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream (additional as needed)
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Gradually mix in enough cream to bind. Turn dough out onto a floured work surface. Knead about 30 seconds. Pat dough into a round 1/2 inch thick. Cut with biscuit cutter. Dip each biscuit into melted butter, coating top and sides. Place, buttered side up, on prepared baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes, or until light brown.
