I am not much of a baker – the science and exactness of it always throws me off. I like to be able to add a pinch of this or a dash of that. You can’t exactly do that when it comes to baking. You need just the right mix to give you the right result. These biscuits are the easiest to make! Butter Swim Biscuits are flaky, buttery goodness! Your family is going to be so thrilled when you make these delicious biscuits.
By cooking the biscuits in the butter, you get the most delicious flavor in the biscuits. It makes them perfect on their own and makes them stout enough to hold up to a delicious gravy (like my Chicken Gravy & Biscuits).
Another reason I love these biscuits is because I pretty much always have all the ingredients on hand at any given time. There are no special ingredients – just your basic kitchen staples. Be sure to actually “cut” the raw dough before placing it in the oven – this will make serving it up a snap!
Now Let’s Get Cookin’!
Butter Swim Biscuits
- 1 stick Butter melted
- 3½ cups Flour
- 2 tbsp Baking Powder
- 2 tbsp Sugar
- 1 tbsp Salt
- 1 cup Heavy Cream
- 1 cup Milk
- Preheat oven to 425deg.
- In a bowl combine all ingredients except butter. It would combine to a wet dough.
- Add melted butter to 13×9 baking dish. Put dough into pan and, using a spatula, spread out dough in bottom of the pan. The butter will spread above and below the dough. Using the spatula, "cut" the dough into 12 even pieces. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
