  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the egg, cream and vanilla extract. Blend thoroughly (this usually works best with your hands).
  2. Form dough into a flattened ball, wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hours. This mixture can keep for several days.
