Cream Biscuits


3 cups sifted cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 to 1 2/3 cups 40% cream

Preheat oven*. 

Place the flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.  Blend together.  With the machine running, pour the cream in a steady stream.  The dough should be somewhat sticky.  If it is not, add more cream.

On a floured surface, knead the dough 5 or 6 times to bring together, then pat or roll the dough to about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut out desired shape and size.  Re-roll as necessary. Place on a parchment lined sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, just until colored around edges. 

Serve immediately or cool and freeze.  To heat from a frozen state, preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place on a baking sheet directly from the freezer and heat for 8 to 10 minutes.

*If you bake the biscuits at 350 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes they
will have a softer top and bottom.

If you bake them at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes they will have a browner and crisper top and bottom.
