1. Position a rack in center of the oven and preheat to 450°F (232°C). Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. (You can also bake in a round pan or in a cast iron skillet.)


2. In a large bowl, stir together with a wooden spoon or spatula, the flour and cream. Dough will be slightly sticky.


3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. With lightly floured hands, press dough together with your hands. Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand and fold in half. Repeat 4 more times.


4. Press down dough with your hands to 1/2-in. thickness. Using a 2 ½ inch round cutter, cut out biscuits. Press straight down and do not twist the cutter. Cut out as many biscuits as you can out of the first batch. Press scraps together and flatten again into a ½ thickness and continue cutting out as many biscuits as you can. Try to handle the dough as little as possible as this will toughen the biscuits.


5. Place biscuits on a baking sheet. Brush tops of biscuits with cream. You can space them out 2 inches apart for crispier edges or place them right next to each other for pull apart biscuits with softer edges. Bake at 450°F (232°C) until golden brown, 12-14 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with salt.
