  Baking powder 2 1⁄2 Teaspoon

4. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk and 2 Tablespoons of melted butter. Stir gently only till combined. Do not over mix.
5. Place dough into the refrigerator for a minute or just until it cools down a bit.

10. Dip each biscuit into the remaining melted butter.
