  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cubed

  • 3/4 cup milk (or buttermilk for a richer taste)


  • Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • Cut in Butter: Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add Milk: Gradually add the milk, stirring just until the dough comes together. Do not overmix.
  • Form Biscuits: Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Gently knead it a few times until smooth. Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle and cut out biscuits using a round cutter.
  • Bake: Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Serve: Enjoy warm with butter, jam, or your favorite spread.

  • For extra flaky biscuits, fold the dough over itself a few times before cutting out the biscuits.
  • If using buttermilk, reduce the amount slightly to avoid overly moist dough.
  • Biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days or frozen for longer storage.
