Main Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt

4 tbsp cold butter, cut into pieces

1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp milk


1Preheat oven to 450 with rack in centre.

2Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Drop in butter, and cut in with two knives or a pastry blender until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

3Add milk, all at once. Mix just until most of the dry ingredients are moistened. (If you are adding additional ingredients such as grated cheese, ham, or chives, now is the time to add those.) Gather dough into a ball and press gently until all bits of dough are incorporated.

4Fold dough in half, pat out into a circle, fold again, and pat again, repeating for a total of six-ish folds. Roll dough to 1/2" thick. Using a large sharp knife, cut the dough into even 2" squares.

5Place biscuits at least 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until biscuits are golden brown on top and a deeper golden brown on the bottom, 10-12 minutes. Serve hot.

Additional Notes

1/2 cup grated cheddar, 2 tbsp minced chives, or 1/2 cup finely diced ham can be added to the biscuits. They're perfect with soup, or as the bread part of a breakfast sandwich, with egg and cheese. Enjoy!
