  • 1
    Heat oven to 450ºF.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in just enough whipping cream so dough leaves side of bowl and forms a ball. (If dough is too dry, mix in 1 to 2 teaspoons more whipping cream.)
  • 3
    Place dough on lightly floured surface; gently roll in flour to coat. Knead lightly 10 times, sprinkling with flour if dough is too sticky. Roll or pat 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured 2-inch biscuit cutter. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Serve hot.

Expert Tips

  • For attractive biscuits and even baking, roll or pat the dough without a lot of handling to an even thickness. Too much handling with too much flour gives you biscuits that are tough and dry.
