1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup margarine or butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup heavy cream
2 Tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
This recipe is for the topping if you plan to make a pot pie and want a homemade biscuit topping.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir until well combined.
Cut the margarine into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter or two knives. Continue cutting until the dough forms a course meal consistency.
Fold in the cream and mix until just combined.
Do not overmix.
Form the dough into a ball and cover with plastic wrap.
Set dough aside until ready to use.
Preheat your oven to 375ºF.
Unwrap the dough and gently pat or roll it into a rectangle.
Cut the dough into long strips. You can then arrange them on top of your filling.
Paint the top of the dough with the melted butter, using a pastry brush.
Transfer the pot pie to the preheated oven. Bake until biscuits are nice and brown, about 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle top with cheddar cheese.
Transfer the pot pie back to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
