It has been ages since I posted new recipe cards that I have added to our family recipes. During the quarantine, while Jarrod has been home...that's Jarrod my chef-in-training, both attending culinary art classes at Savannah Technical College and working as a cook at the Bohemian, downtown Savannah, and I have been trying new recipes. Some baking straight from the recipe and some making the recipe our own.
Today, I am sharing a recipe I made using a recipe by Instrupix. I followed the recipe to a tee, mostly because it is a baking recipe and I'm not comfortable making changes to baked goods.
Can I just say that these biscuits are to die for! I am not a buttermilk fan, unlike my dad was who could drink buttermilk doused in black pepper as a snack, but I bought a small jug of buttermilk with the intention to make these Butter Swim Biscuits and find another recipe to use up the remaining buttermilk.
Years ago I created these recipe cards for my kids' recipe books. Each one of my four kids received a Recipe album one year for Christmas. I made a recipe album for myself and I have been continuing to fill my album and most of my kids' albums as well. I was even asked to create a recipe album as a wedding gift for my daughter's best friend.
We had a new chicken recipe (I will be sharing that tomorrow), I steamed some broccoli, and I quickly - because there is nothing to this recipe - threw together these divine, swimming-in-butter, biscuits. Now, you could easily serve these biscuits stand alone. No butter required.
But, why would you?
Just add butter to the hot, buttery flaky biscuits. You'll be glad you did.
