  • Step 2

    Combine self-rising flour and sugar in a mixing bowl; stir in cream until almost all the flour has been incorporated and dough is wet and sticky.

  • Step 3

    Turn dough onto a well-floured work surface and gently press it into a rectangle about 1/2-inch thick. Use a bench scraper to lift up ends of dough and fold dough into thirds. Press dough again into a thick rectangle.

  • Step 4

    Roll dough out into a 6×10-inch rectangle about 1/2-inch thick. Cut rounds from the dough using a 3-inch biscuit cutter. Gently press dough scraps together into a thick disk, roll out 1/2-inch thick, and cut 3 more biscuits. If any dough remains, lightly press it flat and cut one more biscuit from the remaining dough.

  • Step 5

    Arrange biscuits on prepared baking sheet. Brush tops of biscuits generously with melted butter.

  • Step 6

    Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Brush hot biscuits with melted butter again and let stand 2 to 3 minutes to cool slightly before serving.

  • Cook's Note:

    You can make you own self-rising flour by sifting together 2 cups of all-purpose flour with 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt.
