2 cups Flour
1-½ Tablespoon Baking Powder
2 teaspoons Sugar
½ teaspoons Cream Of Tartar
1 teaspoon Salt
½ cups Butter, Softened
1 cup Milk
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, and salt. Add the softened butter and mix until it forms coarse crumbs. Add the milk and stir just until mixed. Place by spoonfuls (about 1/4 cup to make 15 biscuits) onto a parchment covered sheet pan. Bake until puffed and golden, about 15 minutes.
1-2 teaspoons of herbs (dill is my favorite), or
1 cup shredded cheese - 3/4 in the dough, 1/4 on top
Makes 15 biscuits
