Spiky Biscuits

My oldest daughter labeled these home-style drop biscuits "Spiky Biscuits" due to the delicious browned spikes of dough that top them.

Spiky Biscuits
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold butter
1 cup milk

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large, sturdy mixing bowl. Slice the cold butter into the mixture, then work in with a pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly.

Stir in the milk all at once just until blended. The dough should be heavy and just moistened, not too wet.

Drop dough into mounds about 2 inches apart on a large cookie sheet. Bake in a 450°F oven for 10-12 minutes. Makes 10-12 biscuits.
