Flaky Layer Biscuits

-6 TB butter, softened
-2 C AP Flour, plus 2-3 TB more as needed
-1 C Milk
-1 TB baking powder

Mix the ingredients, adding flour 1 TB at a time after the first 2 C until it just forms a ball.

Turn out onto a floured surface and dust the top with flour.  Roll out about 1/4th inch thick or so, and brush the top with melted butter.

Fold the sides over like a brochure, overlapping in the middle.  Fold the top or bottom, or both, as well if needed or if you want more layers.  Give it a good roll (or smoosh) with a roller to meld the layers back together. You want it to be an inch or a so tall dough when you go to cut it.

Cut as desired, I like to use a square cutter that way I don't have to reroll my dough since when you fold this it has relatively squared off sides.

Bake at 400F for 16-18 minutes. 

I decided to try this while pondering pastry dough.  I also was out of bread this morning, so it was a perfect time to give it a whirl.

Happy crafting! Pin It Now!
