Did the title of this recipe get your attention? Butter. Dip. Biscuits. Hello lover. I just love biscuits. Is there anyone out there who doesn’t enjoy biscuits? Bread, of any type, speaks to our most basic of necessities. And if that particular type of bread just happens to be easy to make and includes butter, then I am hoppin’ on board that flour train.
This is such an easy recipe. You don’t even have to roll out any dough or use biscuit cutters. And y’all know I’m all about easy during those busy weeknights.
I’ve slightly modified it since I’ve started making these. We absolutely love them. They come out so big and fluffy. Now, you can certainly cut this recipe in half if you’d like a smaller and thinner biscuit. But big and fluffy is how I roll.
1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter*
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
1 3/4 cup buttermilk (must be buttermilk, not regular milk)
Preheat oven to 450F degrees.
In a microwave-safe bowl (or you can use the baking dish that you’ll be baking these in if it’s microwave-safe), melt stick of butter in the microwave. Put melted butter in an 8×8 baking dish.
Pour biscuit dough into baking dish (right on top of the melted butter.) Spread it out with the back of a spoon or a butter knife or your hand.
You won’t get it perfectly even, but hey, that’s okay, these are homemade, remember? Some of the butter will run over the top of the dough, that’s perfectly okay.
Slice and serve with butter!
Cook’s Notes: If using unsalted butter (as shown in the video), be sure to add 1 tsp. salt.
