Buttermilk Butter Dip Biscuits

  • Yield: 9 1x


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


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) 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


  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!


  • 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.
