Quick & Easy Cream Biscuits

This recipe is from the America's Test Kitchen. I find that most biscuits are a little dry, and taste of baking soda. But these biscuits are extremely moist & flaky. Just what a biscuit should be. Unfortunately, they aren't so great for that New Year's Resolution that most of us made.

2 c. all purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
2 t. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 1/4 c. heavy cream (plus or minus)

Preheat oven to 425. Mix together dry ingredients. Add cream until it just comes together. Roll out on floured surface & cut into biscuits. Bake for 12-15 min.

**The key to tender biscuits is NOT to over work them. The less you can work the dough, the fluffier it will be.

I had these at Jess's house. They are awesome -- and they'd be great with the lentil soup (though they may cancel the Weight Watcher's aspect :) ).
