2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil, for topping
How to make
Heat oven to 450°F.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in bowl; cut in 2/3 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 10 times or until smooth. Roll out dough to 9x6-inch rectangle, about 3/4 inch thick. Cut in half lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 4 even pieces, forming 8 rectangular biscuits. Place, 1 inch apart, onto ungreased baking sheet.
Tip: Cutting Dough
Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. (Check biscuits often to ensure they do not overbake.)
Tip: Brushing with Butter
Serve warm with plenty of Butter with Canola Oil to spread on top.
