If you’re not already familiar with these biscuits let me start off by telling you a little bit about the origin of this recipe.  The original recipe for Butter Dips comes from the 1961 Betty Crocker cookbook, (I still have my mother’s and have used it for many years).  The original recipe, which I’ve made more times than I can remember, (subsituting buttermilk for the milk)  calls for mixing the dough and cutting it into strips and placing in a dish of melted butter.  The end result..soft buttery breadsticks.

Over the years, some bakers have adapted the original recipe by doubling the ingredients, changing the milk to buttermilk, and placing the entire dough in melted butter and simply scoring the dough with a knife into nine equal squares.  The adapted recipe is what I’m sharing with you today, but hey if you want to try the original version, make the recipe above.

Description

Soft and buttery, these biscuits melt in your mouth and are the easiest biscuit you’ll ever make.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, unsalted
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 3/4 cups full fat buttermilk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place the butter in an 8 x 8 inch microwavable baking dish and melt in the microwave or oven. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add the buttermilk and mix just to combine. Mixture will be sticky and wet.
  4. Transfer the dough into the baking dish over the melted butter. Using a spoon or spatula, press the dough evenly across dish and into each corner. Don’t worry if the butter oozes up over the edges of the dough. Using a sharp knife, cut through the dough cutting it into nine equal squares.
  5. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes until biscuits are golden brown on top.
  6. Serve hot. No butter needed!

Notes

  • You can use milk instead of the buttermilk if desired. Biscuits will still be great but a little less buttery.
  • Store covered but no need to refrigerate.
