Biscuit Recipe

  • 2–1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold, cut in small pieces
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp cream

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a baking sheet. Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Add the butter and rub it into the flour mixture with your fingertips until it resembles very coarse meal. Stir in the milk until a very soft dough forms. Do not overwork the dough!
  2. Drop the dough in to 6 equal portions onto the prepared baking sheet. Lightly pat each portion into a disk and lightly brush tops of disks with cream.
  3. Bake biscuits in the center of the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
