Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt over a large bowl.

Turn out on a lightly floured cutting board or working surface.
Knead the dough until smooth about 2 minutes, and roll out to ¾ inch thick.
Cut out and place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment papper.
Brush the top with the melted butter.
Bake until golden brown about 15 minutes.
Cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for about 5 minutes.
Serve warm or place the biscuits on the wire rack to cool completely.
