Recipe Servings


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 cup buttermilk 

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, melted

*Substitute 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar and enough milk to equal 1 cup. Let stand 5 minutes.


Heat oven to 450°F.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in buttermilk just until moistened.

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.

Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned. (Check biscuits often to assure they do not overbake.)

Serve warm with plenty of Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil spread on top.
