Rich and delicious, Butter Biscuits can go as a side to any savory dish, or can simply be eaten by themselves.
Time required: 30 min
- 2 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 cup Straus Butter (sweet or lightly salted)
- 3/4 cup Straus Milk (any variety)
Optional: add 1 tablespoon freshly chopped chives (after cutting in butter) or add 1/2 cup medium or sharp white cheddar cheese (with dry ingredients).
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by rubbing 1 tablespoon butter or using parchment paper and dust with 1 teaspoon flour.
Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar together. Cut in the butter with a fork or a pastry cutter until butter is in small crumbles. Add most of the milk, keeping just a couple of tablespoons back. Turn the dough onto a floured board and gently knead until the ingredients are evenly mixed. Gently roll the dough out until it is 1/2 inch thick. Cut into desired size and place on the baking sheet. Brush with milk and bake in oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Serve hot with butter.
