DIRECTIONS

  • Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • While oven is pre-heating, place ¼ cup butter in a 7x11 baking dish or 10” round skillet and place in oven to melt. (a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet really shines at creating the crispy edges, or use a glass baking dish for the prettiest job of browning).
  • While the pan is in the oven blend flour, salt, cream of tartar, sugar, baking powder, and then cut in the remaining butter.
  • Lightly beat 1 egg in 1 cup of milk before stirring it in the flour mixture.
  • Remove the buttered pan from oven.
  • Butter should be melted and just slightly browned.
  • Do not knead the biscuits, but instead use a large cookie/ ice cream scoop to immediately scoop out balls of dough into the buttered pan.
  • Biscuits should be nestled together somewhat tightly.
  • Quickly place back into oven and bake for 25 minutes or until the tops are lightly brown.
