Perfect Biscuits

I haven't posted in Forever! But I just HAD to post these most amazing biscuits!  They are so quick and EASY! No buttermilk? No Problem! Don't have time to make perfect layers? No problem! I wanted to cry when these came out of the oven looking and tasting so perfect! And on the first try! So go on already and make some biscuits! I found the recipe here! (I could kiss this girl, I am so happy!)

Perfect Biscuits
makes about 12

3 cups flour
3 T sugar
1/2 t salt
4 t baking powder
1/2 t cream of tartar
3/4 cup COLD butter
1 egg
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450.  Lightly grease a cookie sheet. Cut the butter into small pieces and place them in the freezer just while you mix the dry ingredients. Mix together the dry ingredients. Cut the butter in using a pastry cutter.  Mix together the milk and egg and add it to the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined (mine still had some four at the bottom and wasn't completely together). Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead about 10 times adding flour if it gets too sticky until you have a nice ball. Roll or pat the dough on a floured surface until it is about 1 inch thick. Cut with a biscuit cutter or a cup.  Place on a cookie sheet so the edges are almost touching. Bake for 10-15 minutes until they are older brown.  Brush the tops with a little melted butter. Prepare to be amazed!!
