ingredients to make Honey Butter Biscuits

How to Make Honey Biscuits

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, a fork, or two knives, cut the cold butter and cream cheese into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse sand or crumbs.

The very small bits of butter and cream cheese are good and will help make the biscuits nice and flaky.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead just until it comes together into a ball. Flatten the dough out into a circle, about 3/4-inch in thickness. Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter to cut out round biscuits, then re-roll the extra pieces of dough to cut out the remaining biscuits.

Place the biscuits on the prepared cookie sheet and bake at 450ºF for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.

While the biscuits are baking, add the butter and honey to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until the butter is melted. Continue to cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until smooth. Remove from the heat.

Remove the biscuits from the oven and generously brush with some of the honey butter. Return the biscuits to the oven to bake at 450ºF for 3-5 minutes until golden brown.

What to Serve with the Biscuits

Gravy – Although these biscuits are lightly sweetened with the honey butter glaze, they do still go great with sausage gravy. Just split them open and spoon the gravy over the biscuit halves.

Whipped Honey Butter – The chilled whipped honey butter is a delicious accompaniment to these biscuits.

Butter and Jam – Sweet cream butter and your favorite jam is a classic choice and great with the biscuits.

Sandwiches – Split the biscuits open and fill with eggs, cheese, and breakfast meat such as bacon, ham, or a sausage patty for a filling breakfast sandwich.
