Southern Biscuits, British Scones

So there is some argument about this recipe. I call them Biscuits (which is what they are!) but Husband’s coworkers don’t agree.  I’ll let you make them and decide.

Liz’ Biscuits

2 cups / 315g flour
1/2 cup /112g butter/margarine (cold)
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tarter
2/3 cup milk

Mix the dry ingredients. Add cold butter/margarine and use a hand mixer to blend in the butter. It should break up the butter into pebble sized pieces. Add the milk and mix in by hand till it forms a sticky dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat down into 1 1/2 cm thickness, do NOT use a rolling pen. Flour the edge of a cup whose mouth is the size you want the final biscuits to be. Use the cup to cut out your biscuits, pressing straight down without twisting. Place on an ungreased baking sheet (they can be placed very close together since they will not spread much). Bake at 180c for a fan oven or 200c until golden brown (appropriately 9 minutes, although you should start checking around 5 minutes).
