Servings 10 biscuits


  • 2 1/2 cups flour (we use einkorn)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder (we use homemade)
  • 1 tbsp honey or sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp cold butter, sliced
  • 1 cup milk (you may not need all of it)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°

  2. Combine dry ingredients, either in a food processor or by hand. If using honey, add during the next step.

  3. Add butter slices to dry mix, cut in until mix resembles coarse crumble. Pulse if using food processor - be careful not to over mix.

  4. Add milk and mix until a shaggy dough forms. You may not need all the milk, depending on the type of flour you are using.

  5. Scrap dough onto a well flour surface. Flour dough and form into a ball. Keep all sides of dough floured while working.

  6. Press or roll dough into a 1 inch high disc. Fold dough in half lengthwise, then in half sideways so that it is folded in quarters.

  7. Roll dough into a 1 inch high disc and cut with a glass or biscuit cutter. I use this 2" biscuit cutter.

  8. Place on a parchment lined tray and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
