- 3/4 c butter
Dice butter into tiny pieces and put back in the refrigerator. You can use immediately, but colder is better.
Mix the dough
- 3 c AP flour
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 egg
- 1 c milk
Preheat over to 450°F.
Mix all ingredients above in a large mixing bowl. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter. Mix well until butter is pea sized or slightly smaller.
On a floured surface, knead (12 - 15 folds) and roll out dough to 3/4” thickness.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown on the top.
- You can use buttermilk. It is thicker than milk, so you should expect to use 1 1/4 c.
