Ingredients:  
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbsp. sugar
tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
tsp cream of tarter
cup COLD butter
1 egg
1 cup whole milk

Directions:
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 450

2. The secret to excellent biscuits is COLD BUTTER. Really cold. Many times the biscuit dough gets worked so much that the butter softens before the biscuits even go in the oven. Try cutting the butter into small pieces and stick back in the fridge pulling out only when ready to incorporate into the dough.

3. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

4. Use a pastry cutter to cut cold butter into the flour mixture. Don't go too crazy here - you want to see small, pea-sized pieces of butter throughout the dough.

5. Add in the milk and egg and mix just until the ingredients are combined. The dough will be sticky but don't keep working it. You should be able to see the butter pieces in the dough.

6. Turn the dough out onto a generously floured surface. Sprinkle some flour on the top of dough so it won't stick to your fingers and knead 10-15 times. If the dough is super sticky just sprinkle on some additional flour.

7. Pat the dough out to - 1 inch thickness and cut with a biscuit cutter or glass. I ended up with nine this time but depending on who is snacking on biscuit dough, I can get up to 12 biscuits.
