Butter Swim Biscuits

Butter Swim Biscuits

These biscuits are so named because they float in butter before baking. Perfect for breakfast or dinner.


  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ cups buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (230°C).
  2. Put the butter in an 8″ x 8″ glass baking dish and microwave it for 1 minute.
  3. Stir in the butter and continue to cook it in the microwave for 20 seconds until the butter is completely melted.
  4. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Then add the curd and stir until combined.
  5. Pour the mixture over the melted butter and brush the melted butter over it. Use a scraper to cut the dough into 9 equal pieces.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until cookies begin to turn brown, 20 to 25 minutes.
