Sift flour, salt, baking powder, and soda together 3 times. Cut in chilled butter with pastry blender or 2 knives, scissors fashion, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Chill mixture in the refrigerator about 1 hour or longer.
Add buttermilk and knead lightly, 10–15 times. Roll to 3/4-inch thickness and cut with a 1 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter, and place on lightly greased cookie sheet; or press dough quickly into a shallow greased and floured 9 x 10-inch pan, and cut dough into diamond or square-shaped biscuits.
Brush with melted butter and bake 12 minutes at 450° for round biscuits, or at 400° for 18 minutes for pan biscuits. Makes 10 (2-inch) or 15 (1 1/2-inch) round biscuits. The pan biscuits will have tender, soft sides and must be separated. These biscuits are extremely light and delicious. There never seem to be enough!.
