Preheat oven to 425 deg.
Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Drop in COLD butter cut into pieces. Cut it in with a pastry blender until the largest pieces are the size of peas and the rest resemble breadcrumbs. Do not allow the butter to melt of form a paste with the flour.
Whisk together the egg and heavy cream and add. Mix just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Gather the dough into a ball and knead it gently against the sides and bottom of the bowl 5 to 10 times, turning and pressing any loose pieces into the dough each time until they adhere and the bowl is fairly clean. Transfer to a lightly surface and pat the dough into an 8-inch round about 3/4 inch thick. Cut into 8 or 12 wedges and place at least 1/2 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
Brush the tops with 2 to 3 teaspoons cream and sprinkle with sugar, if desired.
Bake until the tops are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool on a rack or serve warm.
