Cream Biscuits
From Ann Carter

2 c flour
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 - 1 1/2 c heavy cream
1/3 c (5 tbsp) butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425.  Have ready an ungreased baking sheet.  Toss together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl, stirring with a fork to blend and lighten.  Slowly add 1 cup cream, stirring constantly.  Gather the dough together;  when it hold together and feels tender, it is ready to knead.  If the dough seems shaggy and pieces are dry and falling away, slowly add enough additional cream to make the dough hold together.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for 1 minute.  Pat the dough into a square that is about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut into 12 squares and dip each into the melted butter so all sides are coated.  Place the biscuits 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.  Bake for about 15 minutes or until the biscuits are lightly browned.  Serve hot.
