If you’re looking for a recipe for butter biscuits that are suitable for taking to a swimming event or any outdoor activity, you’ll want something that is sturdy and can withstand being transported without becoming soggy. Here’s a simple recipe for butter biscuits that should hold up well:


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  2. Cream Butter and Sugar:
    • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add Eggs and Vanilla:
    • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Mix in the vanilla extract.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Mix Dough:
    • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until a dough forms. The dough should be slightly sticky but manageable.
  6. Form Biscuits:
    • Roll the dough into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter, and place them on the prepared baking sheets. Leave some space between each ball as they will spread slightly while baking.
  7. Flatten Biscuits:
    • Use the bottom of a glass or a fork dipped in flour to gently flatten each dough ball into a round biscuit shape, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
  8. Bake:
    • Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  9. Cool and Store:
    • Allow the biscuits to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Pack for Swimming:
    • Once the biscuits are completely cooled, pack them in an airtight container or zip-top bag for transport to your swimming event. The buttery texture should hold up well, making them a delicious snack to enjoy after swimming.

These butter biscuits are simple yet flavorful, perfect for enjoying as a snack on the go or as a treat during outdoor activities like swimming. Customize the recipe by adding a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar or a drizzle of icing for extra sweetness if desired. Enjoy your swimming event and the delicious biscuits!
