  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter, very cold
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup milk or almond milk
  1. Mix together the dry ingredients. Chop the butter into chunks, and add to the bowl.
  2. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender, until the mixture looks like coarse cornmeal.
  3. Add 1/3 cup milk, and see if the dough comes together into a mass. If needed, add a smidgen more.
  4. Gather the dough together, and give it a quick knead (10-20 seconds) to make it uniform. Cover the dough with plastic, and let it rest in the fridge until you need it.
