There is nothing like a hot, flaky biscuit that almost melts in your mouth as you are eating them. The problem is, biscuits are very similar to other pastry dough like pie dough where you need to cut the butter in quickly so it stays cold to make the dough come out light and flaky as the biscuits bake. With the heavy cream substituting for the butter in these biscuits, it makes the preparation much easier and the biscuits still come out light and flaky like you want them to. There is zero fuss in these and the preparation is a breeze with the use of one bowl and is ready to bake before you oven is even ready.

The fritters are basically a cornbread or hush puppy pancakes. The cornmeal fritters are extremely easy to make and takes about 15-20 minutes from start to finish.
When most people think of scones, they think a dry and hard triangle that is lacking flavor and mouth feel.
