Pounding Heart Biscuits

in Love Recipes

What You Need:

2 T unsalted butter, melted and divided
1/2 C self rising flour
2 T cold unsalted butter, cut into 12 pieces
3 1/2 T cold heavy whipping cream

How to Make It:

Set the oven temperature to 450 degrees and allow the oven to heat while making the biscuit dough.
Brush 1 T of the melted butter over a 6 in. square area on a baking sheet and set aside.
Sift the flour into a mixing bow.
Place the butter pieces into the flour and cut the butter in using a fork until the remaining lumps are no larger than a pea.
Sprinkle the cold whipping cream over the flour mixture.
Toss with a fork just until the dough begins to hold together.
If necessary an additional 1/2 T of whipping cream can be used.
Flour your hands and knead the dough 6 times while still in the bowl.
Lightly flour a cutting board and place the dough on the flour.
Form the dough into a rectangle about 1/2 in. thick on the cutting board.
Use a heart shaped cookie cutter and cut out 3 to 4 biscuits.
Place the biscuits on the butter prepared baking sheet.
Bake 10 minutes or until a golden brown.
Use the remaining melted butter to brush the tops of the biscuits while they are still warm.  

Serves: 2

Be sure to cut the butter into pieces and then return them to the refrigerator until they are cold.  This will help produce a flaky biscuit when they are baked. When adding liquid to biscuit dough, sprinkle it over the dough instead of dumping it into the flour.  Toss the dough with a fork.  This will give the flour a chance to absorb the liquid giving you moist dough instead of a wet mess.
