Mixing bowl, Oven, Rolling pin, Parchment paper
Preheat oven to 425°F. Sift the flour & baking powder together into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar & a pinch of salt.
Cut the room-temperature butter into small pieces. Add the butter to the flour. Mix it together with your fingers until it forms a crumbly texture.
Pour in the milk. Use a fork to combine the mixture.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface. Gently knead the dough until forms a uniform ball of dough. Be careful not to over-knead it!
Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough to about 1-inch thickness.
Use a drinking glass or biscuit-cutter to cut out discs of dough.
Transfer each disc to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Separate the egg, keeping only the yolk. Brush each biscuit with the egg yolk.
Bake for 12-15 min, or until the tops are golden brown.
Remove from the oven. Let cool slightly.
Serve warm with butter, jam, honey or whatever you fancy!
