BUTTER DIP BUTTERMILK BISCUITS
1 stick (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 oven to 450F degrees.
In a microwave-safe bowl or in the baking dish that you’ll use for baking, if it’s microwave-safe, melt butter in the microwave. Put melted butter in an 8×8 baking dish.
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder; pour in buttermilk. Stir until a loose dough forms. Batter will be sticky.
Pour biscuit dough into baking dish (right on top of the melted butter.) Spread it out with the back of a spoon or a butter knife or use your hand. Dough may not be even but that's okay. Some of the butter will run over the top of the dough and that is okay, too.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, rotating dish once during baking. Oven times do vary since different ovens have different hot spots, but basically biscuits should be golden brown on top and spring back to the touch.
Slice and serve with butter!
