Biscuits are one of those things than can be hard to perfectly master. If using butter it has to be cold, the flour consistency has to be right and they have to be cut correctly so that they rise.

You won’t have any of those issues with these Butter Swim Biscuits. You simply mix the ingredients, pour the batter in to a dish with melted butter, spread the dough and cut it into squares and bake it, easy peasy.

So let’s get into this recipe so I can show you how it’s done!

You can serve these biscuits with jelly, syrup or make them into sandwiches. My favorite biscuit sandwich is a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit. Let me know what your favorite biscuit sandwich is in the comments.
