Easy Cream Biscuits

You cannot go wrong with these!  They turn out perfect every time.  And they taste even better when they're heart shaped.  Perfect Father's Day card not included. :)

2 c. all-purpose flour

2 tsp sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 c. heavy cream (I've used regular cream and it's fine, but the heavy stuff definitely tastes better)

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Whisk together the dry ingredients, then stir in the cream with a wooden spoon and keep stirring until the dough starts to form.  Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly until it's smooth.  Pat the dough into a circle that is 3/4 of an inch tall.  Use a biscuit cutter (or metal cookie cutters that are simple shapes).  Keep reforming the dough and cutting until it's all used up.  Bake on the parchment-lined baking sheet for 14-15 minutes.
