After attempts to make fluffy but buttery tasting biscuits, I think I finally came up with a terrific recipe. I hope you enjoy it!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice cold butter into pieces, combine with sugar, baking powder, and flour. Mix (using your hands) until mixture is crumbly and well mixed. Add 1 cup light cream or half and half, knead well.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to about 1 inch thickness. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits. Place biscuits on an ungreased cookie sheet. Brush a little bit of leftover cream on top of each biscuit. Bake for approximately 8 minutes, or until very light golden on top. Watch carefully, do not overbake.
