Butter Dip Biscuits Recipe

So this recipe went around Facebook and I tried it – and then realized that I had to tweak it because a) I don’t keep buttermilk in the house; and b) it needed salt.  These are Todd and Aerik’s favorite biscuit and they are yummy fresh and plain, under your favorite sausage gravy, or with a bit of butter and jam.  Just the perfect, simple and delicious side to any meal, weekend or week night.

Butter Dip Biscuits Recipe

Author Carrie Hill


  • 2 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 3/4 Cups Buttermilk Or 1 3/4 C Milk + 2 tsp Vinegar - let sit for 5-10 min
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 Cup butter 1 stick


  1. Preheat oven to 450 (yes that's hot - but it works)
  2. In an 8x8 or 9x9 microwave safe dish - melt butter in microwave. If you need to use metal, melt butter in a dish and pour it into the pan
  3. While oven is preheating, measure out milk and add the vinegar
  4. In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients
  5. When oven is preheated, mix wet into dry and pour into pan over the butter. The butter will squish up over the batter - that's ok. You can score and slice the biscuits before baking but it's not imperative. Up to you. If you mix before the oven is preheated - it will raise BIG TIME and loose some of it's umpf when you put it in your baking dish - so wait until you're ready to put it in the oven
  6. Bake for approx. 25 minutes, remove from oven and let sit for 2-3 minutes and then slice.
