Can I prepare and save this biscuit dough 1 day in advance of my Kentucky Derby dinner party?

I need to coordinate a rib dinner for twelve and would like to not have to make the biscuits from scratch in the middle of the party. Ideally I'd like to make it the night before and save it in a airtight bag, then roll it out and make the biscuits in the final minutes prior to dinner. The recipe is as follows:
* 1 3/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
* 3/4 cup chilled whipping cream
I know so little about the chemical properties of this stuff. I've made these in the past at the time of cooking and they were great, but anyone with more culinary insight than I should feel free to weigh in.
