Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add butter; cut into flour using 2 knives or a pastry cutter, until butter is well combined and looks like coarse cornmeal. Add milk, and stir until dough forms a ball. Place dough on a floured surface, and knead until dough is smooth and forms a cohesive ball, about 30 seconds. Cut dough into 14 equal balls. Roll each gently to form evenly smooth balls.
