  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a light colored baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, measure and pour in all the dry ingredients plus the cold butter. Pulse to break apart the butter into small pieces. Pour in all the milk at once and quickly pulse 4-5 times until the dough is just combined.
  • Drop by the spoonful onto prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown and the tops have a little color too. Serve warm.


No Food Processor? No problem!
Measure all dry ingredients into a large bowl. Cut cold butter into dry ingredients using a pastry cutter or a sturdy fork. (Or just use the tips of your fingers to crumble it into the dry ingredients.) Pour in the milk all at once and stir until *just combined*. Dough will be wet and sticky. Drop onto baking sheets and bake as listed in recipe.
