Category: Bread

Servings: 6 biscuits



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (250g)
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter very cold (85g), unsalted European butter is ideal, but not required
  • 3/4 cup whole milk (177ml)


  1. Preheat oven to 425F and line a cookie sheet with nonstick parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Shred the butter into small pieces and then add to the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add milk and mix til the dough comes together.
  5. Transfer your biscuit dough to a well-floured surface and use your hands to gently work the dough together. If the dough is too sticky, add flour until it is manageable.
  6. Fold in half over itself and use your hands to gently flatten layers together. Rotate the dough 90 degrees and fold in half again, repeating this step 5-6 times.
  7. Use your hands to flatten the dough to 1″ thick and using a 2 3/4″ round biscuit cutter cut biscuits and place on cookie sheet.
  8. Bake on 425F for 12 minutes or until tops are beginning to just turn lightly golden brown.
  9. If desired, brush with melted salted butter immediately after removing from oven.
