The 3/1/2 refers to ingredient ratio by weight. 3 parts flour, 2 parts liquid, and 1 part fat.

What you will need

6 oz ap flour

2 oz butter

4 oz milk

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp baking powder

How to cook

1

Preheat oven to 400f.

2

This is a recipe where a good kitchen scale comes in really handy. Weigh out your flour in a bowl.

Weigh the butter and dice it up. Cut it into the flour with a pastry cutter. A fork will work if you don't have a pastry cutter. You can leave some chunks, but the butter should be mostly incorporated.

Set your biscuits on a baking sheet and fire em off. I lined my baking sheet with a silicon mat, but parchment works great.

Bake for 12 minutes. Rotate the tray, and bake for 12 more minutes. But be sure and check every 6 minutes. Ovens can vary a lot, so better safe than sorry. If they're lightly browned and cooked through, they're good to go.

Sounds super easy. Can any flavours be added? Like ajwain, oregano chilli flakes? {😂i first read it as 312 biscuits instead of 3-1-2.}
