Preheat the oven to 425°F.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the chile, garlic, and 1 cup of the cream and stir until a soft dough forms. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead 10 times or until the mixture forms a ball.
Divide the dough into two pieces. Pat each piece out to a 10-inch circle on an ungreased cookie sheet. Brush the top of each circle with the remaining cream.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cut each circle into 8 wedges before serving.
