Place the 1/4 cup of butter in a nine inch pie plate in a 450°F oven. Remove after butter melts.
Add all dry ingredients in large bowl and whisk to combine. Then add 1 cup of buttermilk to dry ingredients and mix until just moistened.
Pour this mixture on to a flowered cloth and knead about six times just to make the dough stick together (using the flowered cloth, they are very sticky). Don't add extra flour to the recipe as they will be too tough!
Roll out dough to an 8 inch circle and cut into 8 pieces just like "pizza".
Place each triangle into the melted butter and turn carefully so both sides of each triangle are coated with butter.
Bake for approximately 15-20 minutes in a 450°F oven till golden brown.
