Butter Dips


Heat oven to 400. Melt butter in oven in a 13 x 9 baking dish. Remove pan when butter is melted. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, then add milk. Stir slowly with fork until dough just clings together. Turn onto well-floured board. Roll over to coat with flour. Knead lightly about 10 times.

Roll out 1/2 inch thick into rectangle, 12 x 8 inches. With floured knife, cut dough in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 16 strips. Pick up cut strips in both hands and dip/roll each strip in the melted butter and lay it right down in the pan. Lay them close together; they will all be wedged in tightly when all sticks are dipped and in the pan.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot.


  1. Add 1/2 cup grated sharp cheese to dry ingredients.
  2. Add 1/2 clove finely minced garlic to butter before melting.
  3. Sprinkle paprika, celery seed or garlic salt over butter dips before baking.
  4. Add 1/2 cup minced chives or parsley to flour mixture

Servings: Makes 32 sticks.
Time to Prepare: About 45 minutes - plan ahead

This one gets more requests than anything else I make. And I usually use one entire stick of butter. They turn out a bit dry for me when I don't. I usually sprinkle the tops lightly with garlic salt before baking.

These are also good with cinnamon and sugar on a rainy Saturday morning.
