    T. unsalted butter, melted and divided.


Stir together baking mix, buttermilk, and 5 T. melted butter until just blended. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 1 to 2 times. Pat to a 1/2" thickness; cut with a 1 1/2" round cutter, and place on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 450 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush tops with remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter. Note-For testing purposes only we used Bisquick all purpose baking mix. To make ahead: Freeze unbaked biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet 30 minutes or until frozen. Store in a zip-top plastic freezer bag for up to 3 months. Bake as directed for 8-10 minutes. Cranberry-Orange Glazed Biscuits: Decrease baking mix to 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons. Add 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries to baking mix. Prepare dough, and bake as directed. Omit 1 tablespoon butter for brushing biscuits after baking. Stir together 6 tablespoons powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon orange juice and 1/4 teaspoon grated orange rind. Drizzle evenly over warm biscuits.
