My friend Rebecca's amazing shortcakes

Quick & Easy Shortcakes
4 oz unsalted butter
2 cups flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
Cut the butter into chunks (I slice it into about 20 pieces) and refrigerate them until they're hard again.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Whisk together your dry ingredients, then rub in the butter. You can use a food processor to do this - you want pea sized chunks.
Stir in the milk until just combined, there will be a few dry patches, but it should be a cohesive mass. Spoon it onto a greased baking sheet (makes 6-8 biggish drop biscuits) and bake for 20 minutes. Or until golden brown and fluffy.
