What are Butter Swim Biscuits?

Butter swim biscuits are made using a very wet buttermilk biscuit dough that’s soaked with butter. They are not cut-out or dropped, instead you plop the entire batch of dough in a baking pan with melted butter and press it out flat.

As well, they bake up with crisp edges from the butter, so good and so easy to make.
