2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
About 1 1/4 cups heavy (whipping) cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Sift dry ingredients into a bowl. Add 1 1/4 cups of heavy cream and stir with a fork until dough gathers into a ball. You may have to add another another tablespoon or so of cream (better too damp than too dry).
Turn out onto floured surface and pat or roll to about 1/2-inch thickness. Cut biscuits and put on a lightly greased sheet. Gather any remaining scraps, pat together and cut additional biscuits. You may brush with additional cream, if desired.
Bake on middle oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes or until pale golden. Transfer to rack to cool or serve hot.
