RECIPE: Butter Swim Biscuits

It’s kind of strange to be stuck at home during a time of the year when so many events are set to launch. The COVID19 pandemic has forced us to spend these spring days indoors, which isn’t so bad, although I miss celebrating Easter at church!

On Palm Sunday, I wanted to make the day a little more special for my family. Since church is closed, we had a Bible study in our living room. Then I decided for lunch to try a recipe I saw posted by various cooks on YouTube called “Butter Swim Biscuits.”

Why Butter Swim Biscuits on Palm Sunday? I can’t really explain why; it just sounded like a comfy, nurturing meal to have buttery bread with some gravy or jam. If you’re looking for a Jesus connection, I suppose I could say these biscuits are baptized in butter!

Butter Swim Biscuits are pretty easy to put together, and best of all it doesn’t require kneading or rolling out on a floured surface. (As much as I love homemade bread, I have a small kitchen and that can be hard to do!) They bake in the oven in a simple 8×8 inch square pan.

They turned out amazing! I was so caught up in their deliciousness that I forgot to snap pics (hence the leftover three biscuits)!

I used a pouch of powdered gravy mix that I prepared on the stove to serve with the biscuits. By themselves, the biscuits taste just as good because they are buttery to the max!
