Freeze 2 sticks of butter until solid (about an hour) and place your mixing bowl and cheese grater in the fridge.
Preheat your oven to 475F degrees.
Measure out and sift 3 cups of self rising flour into the mixing bowl.
Grab the cheese grater and the butter. Shred the butter on the largest cheese shred setting. Stir into the flour using a fork until the large butter clumps have been stirred away. Don't pastry blend just mix them in.
Measure out 1 cup of cold buttermilk. Slowly add in ¼ cup of buttermilk and mix with a fork. Continue as needed.
Once the dough has formed a ball that pulls away from the sides, flip it out onto a lightly floured surface.
Roll the dough out and laminate it a few times. This means sprinkle a little flour to prevent rolling pin from sticking, fold it into thirds like a letter and repeat about 3 or 4 times. This creates the biscuit layers.
For a final time, roll the dough out to ½ an inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or a wine glass, cut out the biscuits using a straight up and down motion DO NOT TWIST!
Place the biscuits about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet and bake for 10-14 minutes.
Remove from oven and brush the tops and sides with melted butter.
