Mom's Tea Biscuits

My grandmother always made these delicious tea biscuits that we loved to eat for breakfast, but hasn't been up to it much latley. So my mother has made tea biscuits a few times, except she looked for a different recipe that was a bit easier and simpler. They taste very similar to my grandmother's, but they do have a slightly different texture. Another interesting thing is that they don't rise and shape completely even. But they are quite good! 
Mom's Tea Biscuits
2 1/2 cups all-purpose (plain) flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon granulated (white) sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cup butter
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 425F. Grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in the butter to coarse crumbs. Stir in milk. Knead gently, then pat out flat. Cut with round cutters. Bake 13-15 minutes.

This is an easy, no-fuss recipe. You can knead the biscuits longer to make them smoother, or shorter to make them very tender. Cut them into any shape and size you desire - for even easier biscuits, just cut out squares.
