Easy Biscuits Recipe

melted butter (for brushing the baked biscuits)
Preheat the oven to 450F. Grease a baking sheet.
Place the flour in a large bowl. Add in the butter, and using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut the butter in until crumbly. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Add in the buttermilk slowly and stir just until combined.
Turn the dough out onto a surface lightly dusted with flour. Knead the dough 3 or 4 times, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking. Pat the dough into a rectangle about 3/4 inch thick. Fold each side over to the center, as if folding a letter. Repeat 2 more times, beginning with patting the dough out.
Pat the dough out 1 more time until it is about 1/2-inch thick. Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter dipped in flour. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter.
