Directions:
Preheat oven to 400. Stir dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers or a pastry blender until they are the size of small peas. Slowly stir in the cream (or milk) with a fork until the mixture just comes together. Lightly knead the dough a couple of times in the bowl. Turn it out onto a lightly floured board, and roll out into a 1 inch thick roll. Cut the rope/roll into about eight 1 inch circles/squares. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and lightly brush the tops with a little milk. Bake for 17 minutes or until cooked through and golden. Serve warm with honey or jam.
