What is better than warm biscuits straight out of the oven? Not many things. I had my beautiful friend’s beautiful 1 year old for the morning today and she was perfectly angelic and lovely. My two Cyclones, however, were in full force pushing each others buttons, screaming at each other, yet too in love to play separately. So it felt like a long morning. One that should end in comfort food. I also had some buttermilk to use up. This recipe is very easy, the biscuits were ready in 15 minutes and all three of the girls loved them. Enjoy!

1 tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
1 1/4 cups of buttermilk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar(the sharper the better)

Turn out onto floured counter and press into a disk about 1 inch thick. Cut with a round glass, about 4 inches in diameter. Place on baking sheet. Brush generously with melted butter.
