Ingredients
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 4 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • 1 egg, beaten (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour and butter. Pulse 5 to 8 times until the butter is broken up into small pieces. Add the milk to the flour mixture and process until the mixture forms a ball.
  3. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. Press into an 8 by 4 inch rectangle about ½ inch thick. Fold rectangle in half. Use a 3½ to 4-inch round biscuit cutter to cut five to six biscuits from dough, rolling and re-rolling dough as necessary to use up remaining dough.
  4. If desired, brush biscuits with egg.
  5. Bake 20 to 24 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Serve warm with butter, jam or honey.
