You MADE Biscuits??!!

Yes, honey. I did. Don't act so shocked. 

I guess I shouldn't take it as an insult. After all, I am the first to admit I'm not a baker. I've said it many times. It's just not my thing. But every once in a while I put on my big girl pants and give it a whirl. 

I've actually been wanting to make these for literally years. When I first saw the recipe my first thought was "Wow I could do that." No rolling. No shaping. Mixing and baking. That's my kind of biscuit. 

My boys immediately fell in love with them. To the point, I made them twice in one week. Now, let's be honest here. These are homemade. They are not going to look perfect; and that's okay. Mine always come out with a couple dark spots. Nobody seemed to care! Believe me when I say, the flavor makes up for any blemishes!

These are thick, delicious biscuits. I think the next time I make them, there will have to be some sausage gravy for on top! 

I might not be the best baker, or even the most enthusiastic. But look at me....I made some down home, yummy biscuits and my boys were in love at first bite! The moral of the story being, if I can do it, so can you!

Butter Dip Biscuits
2 1/2 c. flour
4 tsp. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 stick butter, melted
2 tsp. salt
1 3/4 c. buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450. Spray a 8x8 baking dish with nonstick spray. Pour melted butter in bottom of dish. In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add buttermilk and mix well until sticky dough forms. Transfer to dish...RIGHT ON TOP of melted butter. Using fingers, spread dough out as evenly as possible. With a sharp knife, score dough into 9 biscuits, making sure to cut the entire way through. Bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown and biscuits bounce back when touched.

A Few Notes...
1. If some of the batter comes to the top of the dough before baking, it's fine.
2. I spray my fingers with nonstick spray to help spread the dough easily without sticking.
3. If some of the tops start to brown too quickly, add a piece of foil to the top while finishing.
4. I've made these a few times. My oven has hot spots. I've had varied cooking times, so check after 25 minutes and then add 5 minute increments until done.
