How to Make Self-Buttering Biscuits


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar,
    baking powder, and salt. When your oven is up to temperature, place one
    tablespoon of butter in each of eight 1/2 pint wide mouth mason jars.
    Place them on a tray and heat in oven until the butter is melted.
    Remove from oven, and using a pot holder, pick up jar and swirl
    butter around the edges of each jar. Quickly stir milk into flour
    mixture until smooth, and using a large ice cream scoop, scoop a
    heaping spoonful of dough into each jar. Poke a butter knife in the
    center of each biscuit and move around a bit to loosen the biscuit
    from the bottom of the jar. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown
    on top and biscuit is cooked through. Remove from oven, gently run a
    knife around each biscuit and using a pot holder, turn each biscuit
    out on a platter. Serve with a nice big breakfast. Makes 8 large biscuits.
