3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup chilled butter thinly sliced
1 large egg whisked
1 ¼ cups buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a baking pan
In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and cream of tartar.
With a fork, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the butter chunks break down slightly. You don't want to work it to a cracker crumb consistency, but leave some larger butter flakes.
In a small bowl combine the egg and buttermilk. Stir into the flour mixture just until combined. The dough will be a little sticky. You should be able to see the butter pieces in the dough.
On a generously floured surface. Flour your hands and knead the dough 10 to 15 times. Add more flour if still tacky.
Roll the dough out to about 1-inch thick. Then cut out with biscuit cutter or empty glass.
Place the biscuits on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until a light golden brown on top and bottom. Brush with melted butter.
