Frozen Butter Biscuits

1 stick frozen butter
2 ½ cups of all purpose flour
¾ teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup chilled butter milk

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.  Grate frozen butter using large holes of a box grater. Whisk together flour, salt and baking powder.  Then sift this mixture.
Toss together grated butter and flour mixture in a medium bowl.  Stick back in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Make a well in center of flour & butter mixture. Pour buttermilk in center well and stir 15 times.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Lightly sprinkle flour over top of dough. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough into a 3/4-inch-thick rectangle (about 9 x 5 inches). Fold dough in half so short ends meet. Repeat rolling and folding process 4 more times.
Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with a 2 1/2-inch floured round cutter, reshaping scraps and flouring as needed.

Place dough rounds on a parchment paper-lined jelly-roll pan. Bake at 475° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with melted butter.
