  1. In a large bowl, cut butter into dry ingredients.
  2. Add buttermilk and mix until just moistened. Do not over mix, or biscuits will become tough.
  3. Move to table and knead only four or five times. Flour a rolling pin and roll dough evenly 1 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut out biscuits with a ring mold.
  4. Place cut biscuits on a greased cookie sheet, making sure they are touching each other. This will help them rise and become fluffy.
  5. Brush butter on the tops of the biscuits before they go into the oven and again when they come out of the oven (this step can be optional).
  6. Bake at 415F for 15–20 minutes or until golden brown.

Try adding bacon, THRIVE™ cheese, green onions, or other flavors to the dough or to the tops of the biscuits to enhance the flavor.

This recipe can also be used to make strawberry shortcake. Just increase the sugar to ¼ cup and add 1 tsp. vanilla extract.
