2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for the work surface
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, roughly chopped
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup mayonnaise


Heat oven to 375° F.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using a pastry blender, a fork, or your fingertips, add the butter and combine until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the thyme and toss.

In a measuring cup, whisk together the milk and mayonnaise. Add to the flour mixture and stir just until combined. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and pat into a rectangle about 1 inch thick. Cut the biscuits into squares. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Serve hot.
