Cuisine: American
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 2 cups plain flour - sifted
  • 3½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 113 grams butter (1/2 cup) cold butter cut into ½ inch cubes
  • ⅔ cup milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 230C/450F
  2. Place dry ingredients in a food processor and whiz to combine.
  3. Add butter and pulse til the butter looks like peas.
  4. Dump into a mixing bowl and add the milk and honey and stir until it comes together.
  5. Place on a lightly floured surface (I use a silicone mat because it's easy to clean) and knead several times to work the gluten
  6. Then pat the dough with your fingers to about ¾ inch high. You can go lower and get more biscuits but they won't be as high.
  7. You can cut them with a biscuit cutter, a tin can or a glass but don't use a seesaw approach as that will reduce the rise.
  8. If you want soft edges like I do, place them about an inch apart on a baking sheet covered with baking paper.
  9. I used a knife and cut them square and had no leftovers.
  10. You may brush the tops with melted butter or milk before baking but I always brush with butter right after they come out of the oven.
  11. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  12. I like to let them rest for about twenty minutes before baking, but, seriously, I'm usually so hungry by this point that I just toss them in the oven once the oven is hot enough.. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes or until they are done to your liking.
