These Butter Dips are small, flaky, buttery biscuits.  They are great as an appetizer served with preserves, honey, apple butter, or your favorite topping.  They don’t have to be cooked in an iron skillet.  You can use a baking sheet, too.  You can double the recipe and they are great warmed over in the oven or microwave.

All-purpose flour

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

  • 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 finPreheat 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
