  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 12 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups cold milk
  • 2 tablespoons of milk


  • In a mixing bowl, mix the sugar flour baking powder and salt.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry blender into sized small pieces
  • Add the milk and mix together and form a ball. Do not over mix. Go will be sticky.
  • Roll gel on a lightly floured surface into a shape that is about half an inch thick.
  • Fold over the Dough to one third and fold the other third towards the middle as if folding an envelope.
  • Roll out again to half inch thick and repeat the folding.
  • Do this one more time making sure you do not warm the dough and melt the butter. The object is to keep pieces of butter in tact so that when the biscuits bake it will make small pockets that will make the flaky layers.
  • Take a pastry brush and 2 tablespoons of milk and brush each basket on the top before baking.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 450° for 10 to 12 minutes or until
