These honey buttermilk biscuits are easy to make and wonderful to enjoy any morning with coffee! Don’t forget the butter! These are an excellent way to start the day.
️WHY WE LOVE THESE BISCUITS
We love to cook with honey, and adding it to these biscuits really makes them delicious. Of course, we love to put honey and butter on them too, so we get double the honey. These are not hard to make and if you have followed our website for any amount of time, you know we love biscuits.
We used a square cutter on these biscuits, but you can use any biscuit cutter you prefer, a glass, etc. This recipe only makes about 12 biscuits so perfect for just a few people.
All-Purpose Flour – takes 2 cups, but you may need to add more to get the biscuit dough the right consistency.
Cold Butter – It’s important it’s cold and grated right into the dough.
Sugar – we add sugar to these biscuits and it makes them delicious.
Honey – give these a great flavor!
Buttermilk – Love making biscuits with buttermilk, it’s the perfect fat content. I haven’t made these with milk but I’m sure it would work.
Salt, baking soda and baking powder – must-haves for this recipe.
Topping for Biscuits:
Honey, Butter and Ground Ginger- this just adds a nice sweet flavor to them.
I used salted butter but you can use unsalted in this recipe. It’s whichever you prefer. You can also double the topping and use it when you serve the biscuits.
️HOW TO MAKE
These biscuits are not hard to make if you are used to make biscuits you know they come together quickly. If you are new to making biscuits, check the TIPS section below for a few biscuit making tips.
Get all the ingredients out and make sure your butter is cold. Have a grater out to grate the butter into the flour. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl. Cut in the butter with a spoon until flour mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add honey and buttermilk and stir together all ingredients. Turn out on a floured surface and knead five or six times. Pat dough out with your hand or roll out to about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter and place on a sprayed baking sheet about an inch apart. I used a square cutter, but a round one or even a cup or glass is fine
Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes until the tops are browned. Remove from oven and brush on the topping below.
Melt butter in the microwave and add honey and ginger. Mix together and brush over biscuits. Return biscuits to the oven for 2 minutes.
⭐TIPS FOR MAKING BISCUITS
Knead biscuit dough as little as possible and get as many biscuits as possible from first cutting. Biscuit dough should have some wetness. Biscuits should be cooked immediately after cutting.
SERVE THIS WITH
These biscuits are delicious with blackberry jam or served with a big country breakfast! We love this Hashbrown and Sausage Casserole or these Southern Fried Potatoes. This Crock Pot Ham is also wonderful on these biscuits.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I make this in advance?
Yes, you can but I feel biscuits are always best served immediately.
Why didn’t my biscuits rise?
Make sure your ingredients are fresh, your baking soda and baking powder. Also do not overwork the dough.
STORING AND REHEATING
I keep these stored in an air-tight container and reheat them in the microwave.
