To lower the fat & calorie content, I use diet tonic water and non-fat Greek yogurt. The biscuits are still delicious... thanks to the loads of butter in the recipe :-)

How To Make buttery biscuits

  • 1
    Melt butter in baking pan (9" x 13"). Set aside.

    To make dough: Combine Bisquick with other ingredients in a mixing bowl. Dough will be a bit sticky.
  • 3
    Turn dough onto bread/cutting board. Usng hands, press out dough into a square until about 1/2" thick. Add a bit more bisquick to the board to help manage stickiness but don't overwork dough or it will get tough.
  • 4
    Cut dough into 12 biscuits using a knife or biscuit cutter. Place biscuits evenly spaced onto baking pan, directly on top of melted butter.
  • 5
    Bake at 425°F for 12-15 minutes until tops are golden brown.
  • 6
    Remove from oven and let cool in pan.

    Biscuits will be very buttery, once cooled. Serve plain or with honey or other spread.
