What if I don’t want to make my own whipped cream?
No problem! You can absolutely use a store bought whipped cream instead.
I want to make homemade whipped cream but I have no idea how!
You can certainly learn in no time! I actually just recently learned how to make my own homemade whipped cream and I’m obsessed. The biggest thing to know is to freeze a large bowl ahead of time. From there, it’s simply just whipping the cream and sugar together until it gets nice and airy and becomes…. well.. whipped cream.
Do I really need to grate the butter for the biscuits?
Not necessarily, but highly recommend it if you own a grater! This will help the butter distribute more evenly throughout the dry ingredients and will create super nice layers within the biscuits themselves. If you don’t own a grater though, no sweat, just cut the butter into small cubes instead.
