Butter Swim Biscuits

Easiest biscuits for dinner! A little crisp and very buttery on the outside and tender on the inside. Recipe comes from simplytexas. Careful, these are dangerous, you might eat the whole pan!

Butter Swim Biscuits

Butter Swim Biscuits 2

2½ cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
4 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1¾ cups buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400°. Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir in buttermilk just until combined. Pour melted butter into 9″x9″. Drop biscuit batter into pan and spread out evenly. Butter will come up over the edges and cover over the top of the biscuit batter, as if it is “swimming”. Cut biscuits about half way down into batter to create the individual biscuits (3×3 or 4×4). Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and beautiful! Cool a bit and cut through again, but all the way through to the bottom of pan. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits

I’m just messing around this morning in the kitchen as the sun comes shining in. Lovely morning for a biscuit, but with something more!

Cinnamon Breakfast Biscuits

Biscuit Dough:
2 cups flour
1 Tbl baking powder
2 Tbl sugar
1 tsp salt
3 Tbl shortening, butter flavor
2 Tbl butter, cold
1 cup buttermilk, cold

Cinnamon Filling:
2 Tbl sugar
2 Tbl brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 425°. Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut shortening and butter into flour mixture with pastry cutter or two knives until crumbly. Add buttermilk and stir until just barely combined. The less biscuit batter is touched the better. Let dough sit while mixing together filling, stir together sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Turn dough out onto well floured surface. Remember, the less handleing the better. Gently roll out to a 9″x12″ rectangle. Sprinkle all the filling evenly on one half, 9’x6″. Fold in half to make a 9″x6″ rectangle. Cut into six 3″x3″ pieces. Transfer with floured spatula to silpat lined baking tray, about 1/2″ apart. Bake 12-14 minutes, until golden brown.

Buttermilk Biscuits

Making really good biscuits can be a challenge (at least for me) because the trick is not handling the dough too much. You basically need to leave the dough sitting there with lots of flour and crumblies all around and everything not totally incorporated into a nice neat ball. How do you do that? It looks so MESSY! If you can do it and tolerate the mess, you will get a tall, flaky biscuit that your perfectionist, nit-picker, stickler, fussbudget self will love!

Cheddar Dill Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits

3 cups flour
1½ tsp salt
1 Tbl sugar
1½ tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter, cold
3/4 cup buttermilk, cold
1 egg, cold
2 Tbl water

Preheat oven to 425°. In large bowl, stir together flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder. Cut cold butter unto dry ingredients. Whisk together buttermilk and egg and pour into flour mixture. Hand mix, before it all comes together, turn out onto floured surface. The less you touch it and work with it the better, just like pie pastry. Gently bring dough together and roll out to 1″ to 1½”. Cut out in rounds about 2″-2½” in diameter. Place on silpat lined or sprayed baking sheet right next to each other, barely toughing. Bake 12-15 minutes depending on how big you cut them. Original recipe – Ruth’s Diner Salt Lake City, UT.

For Cheddar Dill Biscuits:
To flour mixture add 1 cup cold shredded sharp cheddar cheese and 1 tsp dry dill weed (or fresh dill).
Try other combinations of herbs and cheese.
