Traditional Buttermilk Tea Biscuits

Ingredients

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 tablespoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
cold butter (½ a cup or 1 stick of butter)* grated
The butter must be very cold. Grate it against the wide side of your grater

Preparation

2
LINE one baking sheet with parchment paper
3
WHISK together first 4 ingredients
4
ADD grated butter, combining with a fork. Dough should resemble coarse crumbs.
5
ADD buttermilk and stir until dough comes together in a shaggy mess - hey, no other way to describe it!
6
LIGHTLY flour work surface
7
MOVE dough onto work surface and pat into a square about 1 inch thick
8
FOLD dough in half
9
PAT dough gently down into 1 inch thick square
10
WITH floured biscuit cutter or drinking glass, cut out circles. This recipe made 7 large biscuits for me.
11
PLACE biscuits on parchment lined baking sheet
12
MAKE a small indentation in the top of each biscuit. This will prevent them from flopping over when they rise during the baking process
13
BAKE for 15-18 minutes. Mine were perfect at 16 minutes on the dot !
14
REMOVE immediately from baking sheet and allow to cool on rack slightly
