    Step 3
    Sift dry ingredients into a bowl: flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
    Step 4
    Cut butter into cubes and blend into flour mixture with fork until crumbly and lumpy.
    Step 5
    Pour milk into flour mixture, and mix with fork, until it comes together.
    Step 6
    Turn mixture onto a floured dough board and fold it over on itself several times, lightly kneading to create layers.
