Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbs. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1 stick of butter chilled, plus 1 Tbs. butter, melted
3/4 cup buttermilk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt into a bowl.

Cut in the stick of chilled butter until mixture resembles large coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Add buttermilk all at once and stir just until dough clings together.

Gently roll out, fold over and roll out dough about nine times on a floured surface. Pat dough out to 1/2-inch thick. Cut dough with a 2-inch biscuit cutter or glass rim top. Brush biscuit tops with 1 tablespoon melted butter.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
