Fruit Desserts The Book

108. Cream Biscuits p.814

This recipe is word for word identical to the recipe for cream biscuits that appears on p.596. Whether this is a printing error, or an easter egg in The Book, it’s the easiest recipe write-up ever.

Categorized as “Fruit Dessert”? I’m thinking it is a printing error, unless “Cream” is now considered a fruit.

It’s a fruit dessert because it’s a sub-component of the Strawberry Shortcake recipe (to be posted later today).

These biscuits made an amazing breakfast food with a little fresh jam. I was happily enjoying them with my paper in the morning until KC informed me of how much cream and sugar actually go into these biscuits. No more biscuits.


well, to be fair there wasn’t any sugar in them, nor was there any butter. The fat just came from cream instead of butter. The recipe called for one cup of cream, and made ~12 biscuits. 1 12th of a cup is 20 ml, at 35% fat it’s only 7.3 ml of fat. Butterfat has a density of ~ 0.9 g/ml for a grand total of 6.5 grams of fat / biscuit. Certainly a rich breakfast, but not unreasonable. Compare that to the biscuit from McDonalds which has 11 g of fat

ok, ok. I don’t eat McDonald’s for breakfast, but I see your point. Make them again. They freeze well.
