Butter Swim Biscuits

Butter Swim Biscuits are homemade buttermilk biscuits, baked golden in butter, are light, flaky, and moist with crispy edges. They are AMAZING and will go with almost everything!

– 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour – 4 tsp baking powder – 1 tbsp granulated sugar – 2 tsp salt – 2 cups buttermilk – 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare a 9x9" baking dish with 1 stick of butter. Place the dish into the oven as it is preheating, to melt the butter. You can also melt the butter in the microwave and pour into the pan. Do not allow it to boil or burn.

Step 1:

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.

Step 2:

Pour in the buttermilk and stir until well combined, but do not overmix the batter.

Step 3:

Place biscuit dough right on top pf the melted butter and spread to cover the baking dish, as much as possible. It is okay to have the butter run over the top of the dough.

Step 4:

Using a knife or bench scraper, cut the dough into squares. (12-15 for 9x13" pan and 9 squares for an 8x8 or 9x9").

Step 5:

Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden and toothpick in center tests clean. Serve hot and enjoy!
