Dough: 

  ● 2 cups flour 

  ● 1 T. baking powder 

  ● 1/2 t. salt

Preheat oven to 400˚F. 

Line a baking sheet with parchment. 

1. In large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt & paprika. With pastry blender, cut-in butter until butter is pea-sized and throughout the flour. 

2. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the milk, mustard, and cheese. Mix until the ingredients just come together. 

3. Lightly flour the parchment-lined baking sheet. Place the dough onto the sheet. Sprinkle some flour on top of the dough, as well as on your hands and begin pressing the dough out into a 9x7" rectangle, about 1/2" thick.
