Day 31: Biscuits & Jam

Who doesn't love biscuits? You can have them for breakfast or afternoon tea.  My mother would often make them with soup which I loved because it was almost like getting to eat dessert with dinner.
This recipe is slightly sweet with a crunchy top and light and fluffy centre. Serve them with lots of butter and some strawberry jam. Enjoy!

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup milk

1) In the bowl of an electric mixer, add all dry ingredients and mix until combined.
2) Add butter to flour mixture and beat on high until ingredients resemble a dry, crumbly consistency.
3) Gradually add milk and mix until the dough forms a ball.
4) Roll onto a floured surface to 1/2" thickness and cut with a 2" biscuit cutter.
5) Place biscuits onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 12 minutes at 450F.
