½ cup butter

2 cups self-rising soft wheat flour

¾ cup buttermilk

Butter, melted

  1. Cut 1/3 cup butter into flour with pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.       Add buttermilk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead 3 or 4 times.
  3. Roll dough to a ¾-inch thickness; cut with a 2-1/2 inch round cutter and place on baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  4. Bake biscuits in a preheated oven set at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Brush with melted butter. Place biscuits tightly next to each other so they will rise up instead of out.
