    • Baking sheet
    • Parchment paper
    • Medium bowl
    • Pastry blender
    • Whisk

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Combine flour and baking powder in a medium bowl. Cut in cold salted butter with a pastry blender. Whisk together milk and egg in another medium bowl. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until moistened. Drop mixture by spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, about 2 tablespoons per biscuit.
