Place the butter in a 9x13 inch pan and place in the oven while it is preheating to 450 degrees. This will melt the butter while you are working on the dough.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. I whisk it to mix it well.
Add the milk to the flour mixture and stir slowly with a fork until the dough just clings together.
Turn the dough out onto a well floured surface and knead gently for about 10 times.
Pat the dough out into a 8x12 inch rectangle.
With a pizza cutter or a floured knife cut in half lengthwise, then crosswise to make 32 strips of dough.
Take the pan with the melted butter out of the oven and dip each strip of dough into the melted butter. I just flip them from one side to the next and then line the butter strips into the pan into two rows.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
I serve these hot right out of the oven.
