Butter: 100g (cold)
Milk: 1 cup (cold)
All-purpose flour: 2, ½ cup
Baking Powder: 1 Tbsp

1. Mix the dry ingredients.
2. Dice the butter and add it to the mixture.
3. Mix the butter with the flour mixture using a mixer or your finger.
4. Add the milk slowly and knead gently until well mixed.
5. Sprinkle flour on a wooden kitchen board and stretch the dough on it in a rectangular shape.
6. Cut the dough into 3 pieces and put the pieces on top of each other.
7. Gently, press down on top of it with a rolling pin so they stick together.
8. Cut it with a biscuit bread cutter or your favorite shape cutter.
9. Place them on a baking tray covered with parchment paper with 2 cm distance from each other.
10. Bake in 200 °C preheated oven for 15-20 minutes (until golden brown).
11. Remove from the oven and let them cool down for 10-15 minutes.
1. If the dough is too sticky, add 1 Tbsp flour to the mix.
2. When you are adding the butter to the flour, be careful to not melt the butter pieces by leaving it for a long time at room temperature or by your hand's heat.
3. If you use a lot of flour and you are worried about melting butter and warming dough, put the dough in the refrigerator or freezer for 10-15 minutes.
4. For freezing biscuit dough, stretch the dough, cut in any size that you want, put parchment paper between each dough so it will be easy to use them later. Put them in zipper bags and slowly remove air from inside the zipper bags. Store in the freezer, and before using it, defrost at room temperature for 20 minutes.
