  1. Heat oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in bowl; cut in 1/2 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.
  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. Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. (Check biscuits often to assure they do not overbake).
