Flaky Buttery Biscuits
Lucinda Scala Quinn
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 6 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 3/4 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder,and salt. Using a fork, combine the butter and flour mixture until they resemble a coarse meal. Slowly add the milk, stirring with a fork, to the desired consistency. Turn dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface (cutting boards work wonders) and gently knead just to bring the dough together. Carefully roll out the dough to about 3/4-1" thick. Using a glass or biscuit cutter, cut biscuits and re roll scraps to use as well. Place on lined baking sheet, bake for 13-15 minutes until golden brown.
