Cooks Illustrated

Yummy good.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour , plus extra for the counter
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream


Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in medium bowl.

Stir in the cream with a wooden spoon until dough forms, about 30 seconds.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured counter and gather into a ball.

Knead the dough briefly until smooth, about 30 seconds.

Shape the dough into a 3/4-inch-thick circle.

Cut biscuits into rounds or wedges.

Place rounds or wedges on parchment-lined baking sheet.

(The baking sheet can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to 2 hours.)

Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through baking.
