"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1 T. sugar
1/2 to 3/4 heavy (whipping) cream
1/2 cup sour cream
4 T (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a 10 inch cake pan with parchment paper. Combine flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Stir in ingredients with a fork. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup of the heavy cream and the sour cream. Slowly add the cream mixture to the dry ingredients, mixing lightly with a fork. Gather the dough together by hand, and if it does not completely come together, add a little more heavy cream until it does. Pat dough into a small ball, and then roll it out on a lightly floured board to form a 9in. square. Cut the dough into 12 squares, dip both sides of each square in the melted butter, and place them in the prepared pan so the sides are touching. Bake in the center of the over until the biscuits are lightly browned and puffed, 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven, and serve immediately.
