Whats great about a cream biscuit is that there is none of that cutting in of butter or shortening, just pour in the cream and stir. Easy! From Cooks Illustrated Make-Ahead Recipe Cookbook. The only thing that bugged me with the recipe is that it calls for 4 1/2 cups of cream, most large cream containers at the store are 32 oz. or 4 cups, I wasn't about to buy another thing of cream, so I just used 1/2 cup of the milk out of my frig to make up the difference. It was just fine to me.
