Biscuits Recipe

Biscuits: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, sift or whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar (if using). Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs (use a pastry blender, two knives, or fingertips). Add the milk and lightly beaten egg and mix just until the dough comes together (the texture should be sticky, moist, and still lumpy).

Place the dough on a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until it just comes together. Roll or pat the dough to about a 3/4 inch (2 cm) thickness. Cut out biscuits with a lightly floured 3 inch (7.5 cm) round cookie cutter. Place on the prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with the milk or cream. Bake for about 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of a biscuit comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack. Serve warm with butter.

Makes about 8 - 3 inch (7.5 cm) Biscuits.
