2-Ingredient Biscuits That Are Simply Perfect

These 2-Ingredient Biscuits changed my life. I’m not even being dramatic.

Biscuits aren’t super hard to make, but I’ll do just about ANYTHING that makes my life a little bit easier!

That is exactly what these 2-Ingredient Biscuits do. You heard there are only 2 ingredients, right?!? You can’t get much easier than that!

Here is what you will need for 2-Ingredient Biscuits

  • 2 Cups SELF-RISING Flour (plus about 2 Tablespoons for your counter)
  • 1 1/3 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream

That’s it. I mean, you can add the tasty stuff to the biscuits once they’re done — butter, jelly, gravy, honey, top it with sausage and eggs — but you ONLY need the 2 ingredients to make the biscuits themselves.

How to make the 2-Ingredient Biscuits

Add the 2 Cups of SELF-RISING flour to your mixing bowl.

Add the Heavy Whipping Cream to the mixing bowl.

Stir the mixture together, just until it comes together, and there are no big lumps.

Dust your counter (or a cutting board) with the remaining flour.

Plop the dough out onto the floured surface.

Gently fold the dough over itself (not really kneading, just folding), dusting with flour as needed. You don’t want to overwork the dough. That will make it not as light and fluffy. You just want it a nice non-sticky ball of dough.

Roll the dough — or just press it flat with your hands — out into a rectangle.

Cut the dough into 6-8 squares or circles — as equal in size as possible.

Put the squares on a GREASED cookie sheet or cooking stone.

Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for about 8 minutes.

Take the biscuits out of the oven, and let them cool for 1-2 minutes before you carefully take them off the cookie sheet


That recipe looks long and complicated, but it’s really not. You basically stir the mixture together, work it until it’s not sticky, roll it out, cut it into squares, and bake it.

It is very important that you use SELF-RISING flour. This eliminates the need for baking powder or salt.

You also want to make sure you use FULL FAT Heavy Whipping Cream. You need the fat to make them light and fluffy.

These are so easy to make, and so stinkin’ good! If you like these, you HAVE to try our 2-Ingredient Crazy Muffins. You’ve never made an easier muffin in your entire life!

The biscuits were delicious. A few did rise but majority did not. But still good. What did I do wrong? Can you use this recipe for dumplings rolled out thin?

I made them today & they didn’t rise only about an 1”. I used self rising flour, but didn’t get fluffy, at all.

@Rosie, @Mike, ok, I put them in an 8x8 clear pyrex dish. They went from 1/2" to at least 3 1/4 4". Increased the time after 8 mins by 1.3 3 times. Beautiful

@Rosie, I saw someone making these same biscuits on youtube. They said if you put them in a roung pan and just touching the others they would get a lot bigger. I haven't tried it yet but I will try to come back here and post if they rose.
