2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold unsalted butter cut into pieces
3/4 cup cold milk. (whole or 2% - not skim)
Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a food processor. Pulse to combine. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Now turn the processor on and add the milk while the motor is running. Continue processing until the dough forms a ball. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and gently knead a few times.
Roll out to about 1/2 inch and cut with a biscuit cutter or glass. DO NOT TWIST THE CUTTER OR GLASS. PRESS STRAIGHT DOWN AND LIFT UP. No matter what biscuits you are making follow this rule. If you twist they won't rise properly! Place evenly spaced upside down on a greased baking. Why upside down? It will help them to rise straight up instead of sliding or falling over.
Bake in a 425 degree preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
