melted butter to brush on tops

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 450 F. Sift together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cube the butter then cut it into the dry ingredients using a pastry blender or pulse in a food processor. Cut until it becomes crumbly and resembles peas. Mix in 1c. cold buttermilk, just until the crumbs are thoroughly moistened. Add up to c. additional buttermilk, if needed. The dough shouldn't be overly wet but, slightly sticky. Roll or pat out onto a lightly floured surface about -1 inch thick. Cut into rounds using a 20inch cookie cutter dipped in flour. Do not twist the dough with cutter. Cut the dough, then lift the cookie cutter up. Place biscuits 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. (I used a large cast iron skillet). Brush the tops with melted butter. Bake at 450 for 13-15 minutes until lightly golden and puffed. Brush with melted butter after removing from the pan. Serve immediately.
