Preheat oven to 450. Grease a baking sheet.

In a bowl of food processor, sift flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter and process until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the buttermilk and form into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, gently knead until a dough is formed. Pat or roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface. Cut into 2 1/2 to 3 inch circles and arrange them on prepared baking sheet. Gather remaining scraps, pat them into a round and continue to make biscuits.

Bake the biscuits for 8 minutes, brush the tops with the melted butter and continue to bake for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot. Makes about 15. Bring on the butter and jam.
