Grandma’s Butter Dips

June Wasnick shared this biscuit recipe in the South Arm Cooking Club for seniors. Biscuit is a great compliment with soup, so it goes well with the Tomato Soup Chowder. June made this Butter Dips with Paul’s help. This is June’s grandma recipe. This recipe serves 6 to 8 people.


These little buttery, crunchy buns are perfect with a soup or stew. It is cheesy and we love the green onion bits in it. It makes a great after school snacks and finger food for parties. We simply love this and there is no left over for the seniors to take home.

    It was very yummy and easy to make. The only thing was the oven temp. was too high @ 450F and the bread a bit dry but done in abt 10mins!
