Butter Dip Biscuits


Butter dip biscuits are the perfect alternative to your standard farmhouse biscuits you can buy at the grocery store. They’re super fluffy and the perfect complement to any meal. This recipe couldn’t be easier– simply mix the ingredients, pour them into greased muffin tin, bake and then glaze or dip in melted butter!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ cup salted butter
  • 1 ½ tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¾ cups buttermilk (you may need up to two cups)



  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Using nonstick cooking spray, coat a glass or ceramic baking dish.
  2. Melt a stick of butter in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl. Pour melted butter into the baking dish that has been prepared.
  3. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing basin.
  4. Pour the buttermilk into the pan. Stir constantly until a thick, sticky batter develops. If the batter is still too dry, add a splash of buttermilk until it is thick and sticky.
  5. Fill a baking dish halfway with biscuit dough (right on top of the melted butter.) Some of the butter will flow onto the dough’s surface. Tip: To help spread the dough out evenly in the pan, I’ll sprinkle my hand with nonstick spray.
  6. Make 9 squares out of the dough (as best you can). This will make it easier to cut the biscuits after they’ve been baked.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping the dish once halfway through.
  8. Because different ovens have different hot zones, baking times will vary, but biscuits should be golden brown on top and spring back when touched. Make a hole in the center with a toothpick. They’re done if it comes out clean with no batter!
