Flakey Baking Powder Biscuits

Flakey Baking Powder Biscuits
These are the flakiest biscuits I have ever made.  I will print the recipe to make 4 and 8 biscuits.  If you want a larger number of biscuits multiply the recipe to meet your need.

Ingredients:          For 4 biscuits         For 8 biscuits
Flour                      3/4 cup                   1 1/2 cup
Baking powder      1 1/2 teaspoon       1 tablespoon
sugar                    1/2 teaspoon           1 teaspoon
salt                       1/4 teaspoon            1/2 teaspoon
Heavy cream        1/3 cup                     2/3 cup
Additional flour for rolling out dough.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.  Gently stir in heavy cream until a very shaggy dough forms.  Sprinkle the counter with 1 tablespoons flour, then turn the mixture out onto the counter and briefly knead into a ball.  Press the mixture into a 1 inch thick disk, wrap with plastic wrap and place in freezer to chill.

Form the biscuits:  Remove the biscuit dough from the freezer and place on a lightly floured surface.  Lightly press into a 3/4" thick square.  Cut into 4 quarters or 8 .  Bake at 450 10 to 15 minutes.
