Now don’t click away yet. I found this recipe on thekitchn called Butter Dips. I love making biscuits on weekend nights and serving them with ham, honey butter, and various jams. The thing about biscuits that I do not like is rolling them out- such a big mess- flour everywhere. Although thekitchn rolls theirs out, I figured I could simply spread the dough out in the dish over that big pool of melted butter. You see, in this recipe you do not cut the butter into the biscuit dough, you melt it in the dish then bake the biscuits in that golden pool of goodness. I adapted the recipe and technique to suit my needs, click here to see how they do it. You will find these to have a lovely golden crust on the bottom as seen in the photo above. The center is incredibly light and fluffy. The BRK gang loved these! I have made these twice, one plain and one with cinnamon sugar sprinkled over top. It’s easy, follow along…
When the oven reaches 450 degrees place dish of butter in oven to melt for one minute. Meanwhile mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, slowly pouring buttermilk into mixture until just blended. Remove the baking dish of melted butter from oven and spread biscuit dough over melted butter with floured fingers.
Pool of Butter Biscuits- adapted from thekitchn
1/2 stick butter
1 1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
2/3 cup buttermilk- thekitchn used regular milk, either are great
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice up butter and place it on the bottom of an 8×8 inch dish. When the oven reaches 450 degrees place dish of butter in oven to melt for one minute. Meanwhile mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, slowly pouring buttermilk mixture until just blended. Remove melted butter from oven and spread biscuit dough over melted butter with floured fingers. Using a dough cutter/scraper that had been dipped into the melted butter and then in flour, cut the biscuits into 9 even squares. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Makes 9.
Note- Recipe can be doubled and baked in a 9×13 inch dish for 13-15 minutes.
