Ingredients

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

1 cup buttermilk  

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

 

Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil, for topping

 

 *Substitute 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar and enough milk to equal 1 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 450°F.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    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.

  4. STEP 4

    Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. (Check biscuits often to ensure they do not overbake.)

  5. STEP 5

    Serve warm with plenty of Butter with Canola Oil to spread on top.
