My most recent prep of biscuits
unbleached white flour, 2C
baking powder, 2t
butter, 1 stick
Preheat oven to 450F. Mix (or sift together) flour, salt and baking powder. Cut butter in to the flour mix until finely blended in small lumps. Add milk and mix into a stiff ball, but don't knead too much. Squash ball into a rectangle about 12" x 6" and cut out circular biscuits with a cutter. My cutter gives me about 8 rounds. I glazed the tops with a scrambled egg and sprinkle sugar on the egg glaze. Bake on a parchment-lined cookie sheet about 15 minutes.
