  • 3/4 cup milk (you can substitute buttermilk for a rich alternative)
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 2 cups flour (sifted)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Set oven to 425º with rack in the center.
  2. Sift all the dry ingredients into a bowl add the butter and using the pastry cutter cut in the butter until you have a mixture with the consistency of corn meal.
  3. Add the egg and milk and stir only until no flour shows.
  4. If the mixture is dry or stiff add a little more milk you should have a slightly gooey and moist dough.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead very gently 15 times (baking powder dough doesn't like to be worked too much).
  6. Once kneaded cut dough in half and shape each half into a ball.
  7. Press the ball down to form a round and cut into 8 pieces.
  8. Place the pieces onto a greased cookie sheet spacing them as they will rise while baking.
  9. Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
