Biscuit dough is a little like Play-Doh. You can shape it, roll it, and cut it up into stars and hearts. Here’s a favourite recipe of Buttery Biscuits from the book Cooking Class.
Makes 10–12
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).

  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Cut the butter into small chunks. Use a pastry cutter or fork to mix the butter into the dry ingredients until the dough is crumbly.

  3. Pour in the milk. Stir until it forms a rough ball. You can switch to mixing with your (clean!) hands if it’s too hard to stir. The dough will be a little bit sticky, so dip your hands in flour first.

  4. Transfer the dough to a countertop dusted with flour. Knead the dough a few times, then shape it into a large ball.

  5. Pat the dough into a flat circle about ½ inch thick (the biscuits will double in thickness as they bake).

  6. Dip a cookie cutter in flour and use it to cut out the biscuits. Place them a few inches apart on an ungreased or parchment–lined baking sheet. Bake the biscuits for 12 minutes, or until lightly browned.
