Southern Biscuit Muffins

Makes 1 dozen muffins


2½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup sugar
1½ tablespoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 stick + 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 cup cold milk

How To Prepare

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well, breaking up any lumps. Work the butter in by hand until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal, making sure no lumps are left. Gradually stir in the milk, mixing just until dry ingredients are moistened. Do not overbeat! Spoon the batter into 12 greased muffin cups. Bake at 350° until golden brown, about 35 to 40 minutes. The finished muffins should have a thick crust with a cakelike center.
