Low Carb Carbalose Butter Cream Biscuits

I have no idea why I’ve not made these Carbalose Butter Cream Biscuits until now but as they say, better late than never.  They are light as a feather and tender as a baby’s butt.  DO NOT mistake Carbalose Flour with Carbquik.  They are totally different products and  I do not use CarbquikThe only reason I decided to try them today is that I still have great end-of-season Oregon strawberries but I …gasp…ran out of Crème Fraîche and I wanted something other than plain heavy whipping cream.  Ah yes, how about some Strawberry Shortcake which then became the ultimate goal.  I couldn’t help myself and slathered one with butter and popped it like two pieces of candy. This was such a resounding success I decided to take a few pictures and just make the Post and the biscuits couldn’t be any easier.  Confession:  I have not eaten biscuits for a very long time as I have so many other wonderful low carb recipes to choose from.  If I fixed only 1 recipe per day from this site it would take me well over a year and there are so many that I like and eat repeatedly it would probably take me more like 3-4 years.  Can you see my dilemma?  And to top it off, it doesn’t take into account the plethora of foods I eat that simply don’t have or need recipes.  So, for those of you who already have Carbalose Flour-these might be for you and if you are so inclined, these are perfect with Eggs & Sausage Gravy.

All my other Carbalose Recipes are listed at the bottom of the Carbalose Informational Page.

Carbalose Butter Cream Biscuits
Print
Ingredients
  1. 2 C Carbalose Flour
  2. 8 T Butter (1 Stick)
  3. 1 T Baking Powder
  4. ¼ t Salt
  5. ½ C+1 T Heavy Cream
  6. ½ C+1 T Water+ Any More As Needed
  7. 8 Drops Liquid Sucralose ( Or ⅓ C Equivalent Sweetener)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. In a large bowl add salt & baking powder to flour and mix well.
  3. Cut in butter until about pea size.
  4. Add Sucralose to water & heavy cream and stir.
  5. Mixing with a fork begin adding cream/water to flour about ⅓ at at time until well incorporated. Once mixed, and inside your bowl, begin folding dough over itself (gentle kneading) about 10-15 times. This creates the flakiness that you need for biscuits to rise during baking.
  6. Sprinkle a little bench flour on counter-top and flatten dough to about ½".
  7. Cut as many biscuits as you can, knead dough again and cut more until you get 12 biscuits. I used a 2½ " cutter.
  8. Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown & delicious.
  9. 12 Servings

Notes
  1. It is my opinion that to open or "split" a biscuit properly it needs to be done gently with a fork as this process will save the biscuit from crumbling.
  2. With nutritional like this you could probably eat two of them.
