1 tsp salt
2 cups 35% cream, divided
1 tbsp turbinado sugar
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl and stir with a fork to blend. Stir in 1 3/4 cups whipping cream, or just enough to bring mixture together into a wet dough.
