SERVINGS

12 biscuits

INGREDIENTS

For the Biscuits:

  • 4 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 2 ice cold sticks of unsalted butter, grated on a cheese grater
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup of heavy cream

 For the Jam:

  • 4 cups of fresh raspberries
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 4 cups of sugar
  • 4 cups of fresh blackberries
DIRECTIONS

For the Biscuits:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and butter until combined and then form a well in the center.
  3. In a separate medium size bowl whisk together the eggs and cream until combined and then pour into the dry mixture bowl. 
  4. Mix with a spoon until combined and transfer to a clean surface lightly dusted with flour.  Dust the top of the dough with flour and roll it out until it is 1” thick.  Use a circle cutter to make rounds and then transfer them to a sheet tray lined with parchment paper.  Note: you will have to reform the dough after cutting it out with circles in order to get to 12 biscuits.
  5. Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked in the center.  
  6. Serve immediately!

For the Jam:

  1. In a medium size pan add in the raspberries, juice of 1 lemon and 2 cups of sugar and cook to 218° to 220° degrees. Mash with a hand masher and transfer the mixture to jars. The jam will stay good for up to 3 weeks.
  2. Repeat the process with the blackberries.
