- Stir whipping cream into flour mixture, mixing just until ingredients are moistened.
- Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead gently until soft dough forms (about 2 minutes). Divide dough into six equal balls. Cover with plastic wrap. Working with one ball at a time, flatten into 7-inch circle; cut into 8 triangles.* Repeat with remaining dough sections.
- Transfer triangles to prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with additional sugar.
- Bake 10 to 20 minutes** or until lightly browned. Serve warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar, if desired.
**If using convection oven, rotate pans one-half turn (180°) after 7 minutes of baking.
