This recipe is all over the internet. I'm not sure where I first landed on it, but it immediately appealed to me. Making biscuits from scratch takes some work. But this omitted a few of the steps, including kneading, rolling and cutting them out.
So I whipped this up one Sunday morning and it was a big hit. The recipe turns out moist, flaky biscuits that are great as soon as they come out of the oven and yummy the next day after a couple of minutes in the toaster and slathered with some honey or jam.
Butter Dip Buttermilk Biscuits
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
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. In the microwave, melt your stick of butter and pour the melted butter into an 8x8 baking dish.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder. Then, pour in the buttermilk, stirring until a sticky dough forms. Then, spoon the dough into the baking dish filled with melted butter. It's OK if some of the butter sneaks out and ends up on top of the dough. Then, run a knife through the biscuit dough, cutting out nine biscuits.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve!
