Buttermilk Biscuits with Sweet Honey Butter

Rustic Homemade Biscuits with Sweet Honey Butter. Crunchy on the outside, soft and flakey on the inside. Best southern breakfast you can have anywhere, even in the midwest.

A ‘quickbread’ that can be done in under an hour with no rise time and simple ingredients. A real treat for the family… any time of the day. This homemade recipe is great for impressing a crowd. It can be easily halved for just a small family for dinner.

Homemade biscuits can seem intimidating, however once you’ve done it, its really pretty simple. And they are SO good. Feel old fashioned in a way, since no one seems to bake them anymore. I put on my apron and just feel transported to another time… when things were simpler, yet there’s still kids screaming in the background :-).

I’ve made some mistakes before… not using a scale for my flour, or leaving them too long in the fridge to cool, pulsing them too long in the food processor {which is just I just use my hands… plus I hate cleaning that thing}. You just have to find what works for you.

Cut that butter into the flour mixture.

Add the buttermilk and work into a shaggy dough. Dump on the counter, and knead gently into a cohesive mass.

Make a square and cut in half.

Stack the dough. Then cut in half again. Making 4 pieces on top of each other. Those layers make it flakey!

Chill for 30 minutes.

Roll out to one inch thick.

Cut how you see fit. This is my no fuss option.

Egg wash is totally optional. I think it looks better.

Now for the sweet honey butter. This is DYNAMITE. Texas Roadhouse Style.

Spread it on when biscuits are warm!

Watch them disappear!
