Amazing Drop Biscuits

Hands down the best biscuits I've ever had! Phenomenal! These biscuits are so good, you need to make these, and soon. We had them to with some baked chicken and salad tonight, and I'm already looking forward to having a biscuit with some scrambled eggs in the morning. I can't say enough good things about this recipe! I got this recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe. I didn't change a single thing, so here is her recipe verbatim.

2 cups (10 ounces) all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. sugar
¾ tsp. salt
1 cup buttermilk, chilled
8 Tbsp. butter, melted and slightly cooled

Heat oven to 475 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment or a silpat liner.
In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a 2-cup liquid measure, stir together the chilled buttermilk and melted butter until the butter forms small clumps. Stir the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture with a rubber spatula just until the ingredients are incorporated and the mixture slightly pulls away from the edges of the bowl.
Using a greased ¼-cup measure, scoop out mounds of the dough and drop them onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing about 1 ½ inches apart. Bake the biscuits until the tops are golden brown and crisp, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from the oven, brush with additional melted butter. Serve warm.
