Butter Swim Biscuits

Growing up in New Jersey, one thing that is a staple at all of my family functions, is these delicious treats. I remember my grandfather making them for us every Easter when we were little. Even though I don’t celebrate Easter, these buttery biscuits melt in your mouth and can be served at any occasion. They are so easy to make and are almost always guaranteed to be eaten.

  • Pour melted butter into an 8×8-inch baking dish and place dough on top of melted butter. Using a spatula, spread dough evenly across pan until it touches the sides.
  • Cut dough into 9 equal squares and bake until golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
