Buttermilk Honey Biscuits
How delicious is a hot fluffy biscuit that flakes apart so perfectly that you peel off each later to eat one at a time? And every bite delivers a blanket of warmth with a subtle touch of sweet honey... Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is!
I can't imagine a Holiday meal without the tradition of sitting at the dinner table, passing around the bread basket and smelling the biscuits every time someone pulls back the cloth napkin and reaches in. Ok - now I'm drooling just writing this. These biscuits have just six simple ingredients that are already sitting in your kitchen! And are quick and easy to make. Now let's get started...
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup Stakich Liquid honey
1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) cold unsalted butter
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small bowl, combine the buttermilk and honey. Stir each until completely combined.
Cut the butter into chunks and add it to flour mixture. Then continue to cut the butter into the flour until they're no larger than peas. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk/honey mixture and mix gently just until there are no dry spots. Make sure to not overwork the dough.
Sprinkle rolling surface with flour. Turn dough out onto the surface and sprinkle top with flour. With floured hands, fold dough in half and pat it into a ⅓- to ½-inch-thick rough rectangle, using additional flour as needed. Flour again if necessary and fold dough in half a second time. If dough is still clumpy, repeat folding process for a third time. Pat dough into a 1-inch-thick round. Dip a 2-inch biscuit cutter into the flour and cut out biscuits, ensuring you don’t twist the cutter. Re-roll the scraps and cut more biscuits.
Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, If you like soft sides, place the biscuits so they touch. If you want the sides more crisp, keep them separated. Brush the top of the biscuits with melted butter. Bake at 400 degrees until the tops are nicely browned, 12-14 minutes.
- Remove from oven and brush biscuits again with melted butter.
