Butter Swim Biscuits

Rated as 4.52 out of 5 Stars
521

"These biscuits are literally swimming in butter prior to baking, hence the name. No need to butter them since they are buttery and fluffy. Perfect for breakfast or for dinner. Great use of pantry items during this stay-at-home order during the Coronavirus pandemic."

These biscuits were very easy and delicious! Will be making again

These are very easy to make and are super good. Just know that they are more cake like in texture then i thought they'd be. I'd make them again :)

I just submitted a review--they were fabulous!

We loved these. They couldn't have been any easier to make and very short time from start to finish. Can't wait to try these with sausage gravy.

I made these and they were amazing! The second time I added garlic powder and a cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and man oh man it leveled it up!!!

These biscuits were wonderful! I loved that there was no rolling and cutting involved and yet the results were great! I made the recipe as directed. Aptly named, the biscuits are swimming in but...

I made this first time today and because I have a sweet tooth I put a dollop of raspberry jam down the centre of some of them Mmmm mmm mmm!
