  • 3 tablespoon cold milk


  • In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork to sift together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
  • Whisk together the butter and milk..
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients adding the butter mixture. Use a fork to gradually work the liquid into the flour until crumbly.

  • Place the disc in the center of a 9-inch pie plate. Press firmly onto the bottom and sides of the dish.
  • Use a fork to crimp the edges or flute.
