Ever since I found the blog, Plain Chicken, I have pinned their recipes like crazy. This is one of those recipes and I made them to go with the Simple Pasta Soup I posted a few weeks ago. Butter Dips are just a simple homemade buttermilk biscuit recipe, but the taste magic happens when you bake them in a pan with melted butter instead of just on a baking sheet. I could have eaten the whole pan by myself.
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2/3 – 1 cup buttermilk or milk (I used 4 tbsp. dried buttermilk and 1 cup water.)
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Cut the butter into pieces and melt it in a 8×8 inch baking dish using the microwave.
Combine all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl then add the water (or buttermilk). Stir until combined. The dough will be a little sticky. Put the dough into the pan with the melted butter and press it out to cover the pan. You may want to flour your fingers to keep the dough from sticking to them. Using a sharp knife, slice through the dough to form 12 biscuits.
Bake for 15-18 minutes until the tops are browned just a little. My oven cooks a little slow, so check them at 15 minutes so they don’t burn.
