Flakey Honey Butter Biscuits
Love these biscuits, I’ve been making them for years now and I’ve got this recipe down pat. There are a few elements that make these fantastic. One of them is the Grated Frozen Butter, another is the Whole Wheat Flour and of course the best part is the Honey Butter brushed on top to crisp it up.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup grated frozen butter
- 1 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon of melted butter
- pinch of sugar
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together until they’re evenly mixed. Grate in the frozen butter into the dry ingredients.Gently toss until it is evenly incorporated.
Add Milk and mix together to form a dough, Use a wooden spoon at the start to avoid gucking up your fingers. If dough is too dry add a bit more milk to the dough, fold the dough a number of times, this is what will give your biscuits layers of flakey goodness. Knead the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into the shape of a plate about an 1 1/2 inch thick. Use a knife to cut it into a pie shape (should be able to get about 8 biscuits)
Put the wedges onto a baking sheet, careful not to crowd them, spread apart a bit so they have room to grow.
For the Honey Butter topping you can put the ingredients together in a bowl and microwave if you want or put them in a small pot and melt them together at a low heat. Lightly brush the top of the biscuits with the Honey Butter and sprinkle a bit of sugar on top of each.
Place in the over for about 15 mins until golden brown.
