Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and position a rack in the middle of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the cake flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter, cream cheese, and honey. Using your fingers, break up the butter and cream cheese into smaller bits and incorporate into the dry ingredients. Your dough should look somewhat crumbly. Push the flour mixture up again the sides of the bowl to create a well in the center. Add 1¼ cups of the heavy cream and gently combine the liquid and flour mixture. You do not want to knead or mix with a spoon. It’s best to use your fingers and lightly fluff around the mixture. This will help to avoid gluten formation and overworked dough.
