Lucinda says that these are the epitome of a cozy breakfast or great for dinner with fried chicken. Slather with butter or jam.
In my experience...they are almost easier than making toast or garlic bread, and much more impressive.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. coarse salt
6 T. chilled unsalted butter
3/4 cup milk
Preheat Oven 45o
-Butter or line baking sheet
-in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking powder. Using fork, combine butter and flour mixture until resemble coarse meal. Slowly add milk, stirring with fork to desired consistency.
-Drop 2 T. of dough onto baking sheet. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes until golden. Cool slightly. Serve warm.
(For firmer less cakier bisuits add less milk and roll out dough, cut with biscuit cutter or rim of glass)
