Recipe Review - Butter Dips

So, butter dips.. yup, it's pretty much what it sounds like.. they are dough dipped in butter, baked in butter, and tasting like perfect baked buttery goodness! No, you can not use margarine. It must be butter.. leave it at that. These are by far my favorite 'biscuit' or 'breadstick' or whatever you want to call them. They are AH-mazing! And, because we had to share these delicious little morsels too, we linked up on Watch Out, Martha.

Butter Dips

Ingredients - 1/4c butter, 1 1/4c all purpose flour, 2tsp sugar, 2tsp baking powder, 1tsp salt, 2/3c milk

Heat oven to 450 degrees. While heating, melt butter in a glass 9x9 pan right in the oven. Mix all the other ingredients by spoon until dough forms. Coat hands and dough ball with flour and knead a few times. Roll or press into roughly an 8" square. Be warned, this dough is crazy sticky, so keep the extra dusting flour close by. Cut your square in half. Cut each half into strips roughly 1" wide. Separate the strips, and in the prepared pan, coat both sides of the strips with the melted butter. Arrange all the strips in your pan. It's fine if they are smooshed together. Bake 15-20 min or until golden brown. Enjoy!
