These Butter Dips are small, flaky, buttery biscuits. They are great as an appetizer served with preserves, honey, apple butter or your favorite topping.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter or margarine or 8 tablespoons, divided
Whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Cut 4 tablespoons of the butter into small pieces and work into the flour mixture until mixture is like coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk and make into a dough. Turn out onto floured surface and roll to 1/2 inch thick. Using a 2 inch biscuit cutter you should get about 15 small round biscuits. (If you don’t have a 2 inch cutter, you can use a larger one or a glass, a jar top or anything you can find) Preheat oven to 425 degrees. I make these in an 8 inch iron skillet but you can use whatever you have. Melt the other 4 tablespoons of butter in the skillet in the oven. Remove skillet from oven and dip the biscuits on both sides in the butter. Place in the skillet touching each other. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes until brown on top. Makes 15 biscuits. Enjoy!
