Farmhouse Butter Biscuits


If you love butter, raise your hand! I knew you did… I am not going to apologize for this recipe… like ever… It is not one that I would make on a daily basis, but it is without a doubt an awesome winter treat! It goes best with jams and spreads….. but I had ham, so yeah, that’s what happened.

These are also known as Butter Swim Biscuits …. wait til you see why.

Let me , real quick, give credit to Ree Drummond ( )  for that awesome butter dish!! I love her products….okay, where were we……. oh, buttah…

You will need:

4 cups  all-purpose flour

8 tsp baking powder

8 tsp sugar

3 tsp salt

3 1/2 cups buttermilk

2 stick unsalted butter ( yep, 2 )

Mix  the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder and stir until they’re evenly combined.


Add the buttermilk.

If you do not have buttermilk in your fridge,  you can make your own by mixing 2 cups of regular milk with 2 tbsp white vinegar or lemon juice and let stand for 5 minutes.


Mix all of the ingredients together until they form a big ball.


 Melt the  butter in a microwave safe bowl and pour it into the bottom of a 9 x 13  pan.  Add your dough and press it with your fingers until it reaches the sides of the pan.

Pre-cut the biscuits so that you get 12.

You may gave to do this twice . 

Yeah, I see all that buttah!

Bake at 450° for about 40-45  minutes just until they’re golden brown on top.


Serve with Ham, Jelly, Jam, Honey or even… dare I say? Butter?
