Fast Cream Biscuits

2 C. all purpose flour
2 t. sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 c. heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Stir in the cream with a wooden spoon until the dough forms, about 30 seconds. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured counter and gather into a ball. Knead the dough briefly until smooth, about 30 seconds.

2. Pat the dough into a 3/4 inch thick circle. Cut the biscuits into rounds using a 2 1/2 inch biscuit cutter (I use a glass cup). Place the biscuits on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

These are really moist biscuits. They are not dry at all and they are very good!
