  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C (392 °F).
  2. Sift flour, salt and baking powder twice in a bowl.
  3. Cut butter in with a knife until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  4. Add milk to the mixture and mix just until you get a soft dough—don't overmix.
  5. Place dough on a floured board. Knead the dough gently until smooth. Roll out to ½ inch (1.3 cm) thick.
  6. Cut out biscuits with a small cutter and place biscuits onto a greased pan.
  7. If you have scraps of dough, knead into a ball, re-roll, and cut out more biscuits.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes until nicely browned. Transfer the biscuits to a wire rack and leave it to cool.
