Swimming Biscuits

I saw this recipe years ago, but was not sure I was gutsy enough to try a recipe that seemed so easy. There had to be a catch to it, right? No biscuit is that easy to make and tastes good when you start with biscuit dough basically swimming in butter.

Alright, I admit I was wrong! Now, this is the only way that I will make biscuits. I am spoiled with this recipe.

This recipe will give you super soft, fluffy and biscuits that rise so high, you can’t help but fall in love with them.

You may be thinking that you just grease the pan with butter, but no, there is more butter to it than that and all that butter will soak up into the biscuits and taste so yummy, it is unbelievable.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I use Store bought biscuit dough?

This recipe is so darned easy that I have never considered that! If you decide to try it, let us know how it works. Meantime, give this recipe a try and tell me it is not easy!

            Do I have to roll out the dough?

No! That is one reason why this is such an easy recipe! Once you have made the biscuit batter, or dough, you will simply pour it into the baking pan with the melted butter.

            Can I use my own recipe for biscuits?

You certainly can! There are no special directions stating that it must be the one here. The point is this recipe is so very easy, I am unsure why people would not use it.
