2) In a large bowl mix together dry ingredients. Add buttermilk, incorporating it into the dry ingredients with a fork. Using hands work dough briefly until it just comes together. Turn dough out onto a barely floured surface and knead until dough becomes 1 piece and is slightly sticky, no more than a minute.
3) Roll or pat dough into a round approximately 1-cm thick. Using a 7-cm biscuit cutter cut rounds. Re-roll scraps and continue cutting rounds until all the dough is used. Place each round on an un-greased baking sheet about 5-cm apart. With a pastry brush paint the top of each round with melted butter. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
