The secret to keeping these biscuits light and fluffy is very cold cream and handling the dough as little as possible to prevent the development of gluten.
If you are making these biscuits ahead of time, flash freeze them on the baking sheet and transfer them to a zip lock freezer bag until you need them. Add 3-5 minutes to the baking time when using frozen biscuits.
