2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 c butter
2/3 c milk
Buttery warm biscuits make the meal great. Perfect with fried chicken!

Preheat oven to 425F.

Sift together flour, salt, and baking powder (or combine with a fork). Add sugar.

Cut the butter into small pieces and cut it into the flour with a pastry blender or a fork. Add milk.

Stir/knead to make a slightly sticky dough.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto a baking sheet. Bake at 425 F for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes a very flaky, crumbly biscuit.

(For a less crumbly biscuit, substitute vegetable shortening like Crisco for the butter.)

Serve with honey.
