1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried basil
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (½ stick), cold and cubed
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray a baking sheet lightly with non-stick spray.
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Stir in basil.
Blend butter into dry ingredients with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Slowly add milk, stirring to incorporate until the mixture forms a sticky dough.
Drop large spoonfuls (about ½ cup each) of batter onto the baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool.
