  • All-purpose flour 2¼ cups

  • Salt ¾ tsp

  • Sugar 1 tsp

  • Baking powder 4 tsp

  • Butter, very cold ⅓ cup

  • Milk, very cold 1 cup


Preheat oven to 450° Place flour, salt, sugar and baking powder in food processor and pulse for a few seconds to combine. Cut butter into small pieces and add to food processor. Pulse half a dozen times and check for the size of the butter pieces. Repeat if necessary until the butter is in pieces roughly the size of peas. Put flour mixture in a mixing bowl and add the cold milk. Toss together gently until barely combined. As soon as the dough holds together, turn it out on a lightly floured counter. Gently "knead" the dough a few strokes until it is a mostly a cohesive ball. Roll the dough into a rectangle 1/2-3/4 inch thick, depending on how tall you like your biscuits. Cut into 2 inch circles, you should get ~6, and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 450° for 8-10 minutes. Butter and eat while still warm.
