The Easiest Biscuits I've Ever Made

I got this out of the Relish magazine that comes in our local paper.  They're so easy and really good!  They were a bit dry the first time I made them.  The second time I made them, I added a little milk (1-2 tablespoons) and I heated my iron skillet in the oven and let 1 tablespoon margarine melt in it.  Then I placed the biscuits in the pan and baked according to directions.

2 cups self-rising flour (or 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt)
1 cup whipping cream (heavy cream)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine flour and cream in a mixing bowl, stirring just until blended. The dough will be a little stiff. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead 10 times. Roll to 1/2 inch thickness and cut with a 2-inch cutter. Place biscuits close together on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes. Makes 12 biscuits.  

Note:  I only ended up with 10 biscuits but I admit to giving Josie some dough to play with.  I would have had about 11 if I hadn't done that.
