These biscuits have a wet dough (like dumplings) that is dropped onto the counter then tossed with just enough flour to shape, giving them a rustic appearance and light and flaky texture. They are easier – and a little messier – to make than rolled biscuits, but that's half the fun.

  • Portion size 9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sifted cake-and-pastry flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream

Method

In large bowl, stir together all-purpose and cake-and-pastry flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. Using fingertips, pastry blender or 2 knives, rub or cut in butter until in coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and cream to make lumpy wet dough.

Using ice-cream scoop or large spoon, portion dough into 9 scoops, dropping each onto well-floured surface. Turn each to coat with flour and shape. Place 1 in centre of parchment paper-lined baking sheet; arrange remaining scoops like petals around scoop.

Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until golden and flaky, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from pan; let cool on rack. Makes 9 biscuits.
