  • ¾ cup unsalted butter (1½ sticks) softened
  • cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter (½ stick) melted


  • Place butter into a small saucepan and melt over medium-low heat. Allow butter to barely come to a simmer for 7 to 9 minutes or until browned with a nutty aroma. Pour browned butter into a small bowl and allow butter to cool.
  • Cover and refrigerate butter until butter hardens completely, about 2 hours. Cut butter into small cubes and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 450˚F.
  • In a mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder and salt and whisk together.
  • Cut in butter until mixture becomes coarse and mealy.
  • Add buttermilk and fold in until dough just comes together. Turn dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface and gently roll out into a rectangle about ½ inch thick
  • Fold dough into thirds, gently roll dough out again and fold dough into thirds the other direction. Gently roll dough out until 1 inch thick and cut into 2”x 2” squares.
  • Place biscuits onto a parchment lined baking sheet, about 1 inch apart and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter.
  • Bake for an additional 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat and allow biscuits to cool for 5 to 7 minutes. Serve warm.
