Unbelievable Biscuits

These were some of the best biscuits I have ever had!  They just absolutely melt in your mouth, and can be paired with just about anything for supper.  There are only a total of five ingredients in the biscuits, and the biscuits take no time at all to bake.  I made some for my special Valentine's supper, and froze half of them.  Unbelievable biscuits are crowd pleaser for sure!
Unbelievable Biscuits
by Chef Alex Guarnaschelli
3 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
1 tbsp. PLUS 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
2 1/4 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups heavy or whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350°. Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into large bowl. Add cream to dry ingredients, mixing with hands. Take care there is no flour remaining in the bottom of the bowl. Turn biscuit mixture onto lightly floured surface. With floured hands, shape into 9 x 6-inch rectangle, about 1-inch-thick. Lightly flour knife and cut biscuit mixture lengthwise into 4 pieces, then crosswise into 6 pieces, to make 24 (1-1/2-inch) squares. Arrange biscuits on nonstick baking sheet or baking sheet lined with parchment paper; chill 15 minutes. Bake 15 minutes or until biscuits are light golden brown.
Makes 24 biscuits.
