1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 cups heavy cream

2. in a medium bowl, combine the baking powder, salt, lemon zest, and the remaining flour and sugar.
3. add the butter and blend with your fingers or 2 knives until coarse crumbs form. add 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cream and mix until a shaggy dough forms.
