21/2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
11/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
1 stick cold butter, cubed
1 c buttermilk
1. Preheat oven to 485 degree F. Lightly butter a 9 inch iron skillet or round baking pan. Set aside. In bowl of a food processor, add flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Pulse a couple times. To this add cubed butter and pulse 6 – 8 times or until resembles small peas. Pulse in the milk, dough will be somewhat sticky.
2. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, sprinkling with enough flour that it won’t stick as you fold the dough over itself 2 or 3 times. Just fold and push with heel of hands 3 times. With your hands, pat out dough to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut out dough using a 3 inch cutter. Don’t twist cutter!
3. Place in prepared pan, touching slightly. Brush tops with more buttermilk.
4. Bake 10 – 12 minutes, or until golden, turning pan halfway through baking time. Serve hot with butter, jam, gravy or honey!
