Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • Melted butter

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3-4 times. Pat or lightly roll to 3/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter.
  2. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Brush tops with butter. Serve warm. Yield: 9 biscuits.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for each cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

"These were very good. I used the editor's substitute for self-rising flour, and it made the biscuits a little too salty, but other than that they were great."
