Better Biscuits

4 cups flour

2 Tbsp baking powder

2 Tbsp sugar

2 tsp salt

2/3 cold butter

2 cups milk

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Use a cheese grater to shred cold butter into mixture and stir to distribute it evenly. Add milk gradually, stirring just until dough pulls away from the side of the the bowl. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead 15 times. Pat or roll dough out to a 1-inch thickness. Cut biscuits into squares, or if you want to be really picky, use a round-rimmed glass to cut circles. Brush excess flour off biscuits and place them on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425*F until edges begin to brown (13-15 minutes). Serve hot.
