Cream Biscuits with Bacon and Roasted Onions

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 Review by Susannah

These are from the November 2001 issue of Bon Appétit Рand ever since I made them for Thanksgiving that year, my family uses any holiday to request them again.  SCRUMPTIOUS and they microwave the next day into moist deliciousness.  Something about the three cups of heavy whipping cream, I think.
