1/2 tsp salt
1 to 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
Coat an 11 1/2 x 15 1/2-inch baking pan with 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk gradually to the dry mixture until the dough is moist and pliable. On a large sheet of waxed paper, sprinkle about 1 cup of flour. Lay the dough on the floured waxed paper and pat dough down to about 3/4-inches in height. Using a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass, cut the biscuits from the dough. Transfer the biscuits to the prepared baking pan. Place a small pat of butter on top of each biscuit. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 375 degrees or until the tops of biscuits are a golden brown.
