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.

I do not want to be rude but these were awful. I will not make these again. They were gooey and tasted “undone” after 30 minutes in a 450* oven. Read More

I (82 year old male) followed this recipe as printed, and turned out exactly as pictured. My first time at biscuits and the flavor is sooo good. PERFECT I split the first one and place a chunk of cheddar cheese in between that melted. OMG. Thanks for this easy & flavorful recipe. Dale P Read More

Loved the recipe. Followed it almost exactly the first time except at 425 which works better at our altitude of 5000' and it was delicious. Wanted to see how it would be in a cast iron frying pan, 10" with butter melted on stove top and pan warmed up. It was terrific with a great crusty bottom. Again at 425 rather than the 450 called for. 5 stars both times. Read More

WOW!!!! These biscuits were amazing. I need to double the recipe net time. I had a thought and I drizzled a little honey over the top. I swear to goodness they taste just like the biscuits from Willie's Chicken in NOLA. Yummmy!! Read More

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. Read More

Awesome, pared with country sausage gravy! 1st time making biscuits. It was an easy recipe to following. Couple notes to remember....1. Its sticky dough so it won't pour out of the bowl, scrape and spread...I used a spatula. 2. When taken out of oven, let the biscuits rest 5 minutes after to allow butter to absorb. Deliciously buttery! Read More

These biscuits are so quick and delicious! I'm not one to take the time to roll out biscuits. These are a wonderful alternative! I have made them exactly as stated in the recipe and have also added garlic salt and shredded cheddar cheese for a variation of those cheddar biscuits at a popular seafood chain restaurant. They are swimming in butter before you bake them and when they come out, but all of that deliciousness is absorbed into the biscuits within a few minutes. Yum! (garlic cheddar pictured) Read More
