My hubby and I enjoy going out in the mornings to explore new coffee shops and to eat their delicious treats. We also like to be creative, come home excited to try to make those delicious gorgeous treats. Of course we don’t make them exactly the same because we have our own touch and measurements. Those measurements make a big difference. Sometimes we succeed, and if not we just try again.
These biscuits came out quite nice with a lot of texture and flavour. You can totally present these ones when your in-laws or friends come over. Serve them with jam or toast them and serve them with butter. You can’t go wrong with these biscuits.
I love savoury and Mauro, my husband, loves sweet biscuits. So this time we made them sweet. We added dry fruits into this recipe. Raisins, apricot and dry figs.
Whipped Cream biscuits
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup cold butter
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3/4 whipping cream
- 1 cup dried diced raisin, apricot and figs
- coarse brown sugar
- Step 1 Preheat the oven to 400F.
- Step 2 In a large bowl sieve the flour, stir in the sugar, the baking powder and the salt.
- Step 3 Add in the butter and using your hands join the mixture together until it becomes coarse crumbs.
- Step 4 With the help of a spoon, make a well in the center of the flour mixture and set it aside.
- Step 5 In a medium bowl stir together the eggs, the whipping cream and the dry fruit.
- Step 6 Pour all the egg mixture into the flour mixture. With a fork stir it all together without overworking the dough.
- Step 7 Place the sticky dough onto a lightly floured surface. Coat your hands with flour and gently press the dough together and add enough flour so that it is workable. Gently knead the dough by folding it 5 to 8 times, until it holds together.
- Step 8 Divide the dough in half. Lightly roll with a rolling pin each half into 6 inch circles. Using a long sharp knife cut into each circle 6 wedges.
- Step 9 Place wedges 1 inch apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Brush the tops of the wedges with whipping cream and sprinkle coarse sugar over them.
- Step 10 Bake for 12 minutes or until golden. Remove from the baking sheet onto a rack. Serve them warm and enjoy!
