Ingredients

  • 2

    cups flour

  • 1

    tablespoon sugar

  • 4

    teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    cup butter

  • 2/3

    cup milk

  • 1

    egg

Directions

1. Mix flour with other dry ingredients. 2. Butter is cut in until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Two knives or a pastry blender may be used. 3. Beat egg into the milk. Add the liquid slowly into the center of the dry ingredients; stir lightly with a fork until the dough follows the fork around the bowl. Turn onto a lightly-floured surface and knead gently about 30 seconds or just enough to form a smooth ball. Pat or roll to 1/2 or 3/4-inch thickness. 4. Dip a biscuit cutter in flour and cut straight down through the dough; do not twist. Cut biscuits close together. Collect remaining bits and pat them flat; do not knead or roll again. Cut rest of biscuits. 5. Place biscuits on ungreased pan or cookie sheet about 1 inch apart for crusty sides or close together for soft sides. 6. Bake at 450* for 10-15 minutes. 7. Yield 12-15 two-inch biscuits. Recipe doubles successfully. Biscuits are best when served fresh and warm.
