Honey buttermilk biscuits are delicious.

Honey Buttermilk Biscuits

Honey buttermilk biscuits are so good you will want to eat them all.  We love these biscuits but we love anything that has to do with honey and I always have honey on hand.  These biscuits are wonderful for breakfast and go with any meal.  You could double this recipe and they keep for several days.  We like them reheated in the oven or microwave if there are any left over.  They are great with sausage or bacon with your morning coffee.  You might also like our recipe for pimento cheese biscuits.

Honey buttermilk biscuits will quickly become a favorite recipe!

Ingredients for honey biscuits:

2 cups all-purpose flour

6 tablespoons cold butter, grated or cut in very small pieces

2 teaspoons white granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons honey

1 cup buttermilk

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 tops are browned.  Remove from oven and brush on topping below.

Topping for honey biscuits:

2 tablespoons butter

2 teaspoons honey

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Melt butter in microwave and add honey and ginger.  Mix together and brush over biscuits.  Return biscuits to oven for 2 minutes.

Recipe makes 12 biscuits.  Enjoy!

Note:  I used salted butter but you can use unsalted if you want.  You could also double the topping and serve extra with the biscuits.
