These are from Beard on Bread by James Beard.
Note: I never do the final step of dipping in melted butter. Also, I usually need between 1-1/2 and 2 cups of cream.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsps sugar
1 tsp salt
1 to 1-1/2 cups heavy cream
5 Tbsps melted butter
Preheat oven to 425F.
Put dry ingredients in a bowl, and fluff them together with a fork. Stirring constantly, slowly add 1 cup of the cream.
Gather it all together, adding a bit more cream if it goes saggy and dry.
When it holds together nicely, put it on a floured bread board, and knead it for about 60 seconds.
Pat it into a square about 1/2" thick. Cut into 12 squares, and dip each in the melted butter, dipping all sides of each biscuit. Put them on an ungreased baking sheet, about 2" apart.
Bake about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Serve hot.
