What better way to celebrate the early arrival of Spring than HONEY!! I know that winter could and probably will show its ugly head again, but can’t we just cherish the moment? Those busy little bees are already out and they are working so hard … I, for one, thank them. I need honey in my life!!
This is a recipe from Granny’s recipe book, she didn’t make them often, because the only person that ate honey back in her biscuit making days was her. I am giving her all the credit on these and of course my kid too. She wanted flower shaped biscuits, so there are a few of those here too… easy recipe… do not be afraid! 🙂
- 3 cup all purpose flour
- 4 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup frozen unsalted butter, grated
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup honey
- 4 Tbsp butter melted with 1 tablespoon honey
THE HOW TO:
Preheat the oven to 425°
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl use a fork to mix together the flour , baking powder and salt.
Add grated butter. Mix until there are no large hunks of butter.
Using a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and the 1/4 cup honey.
Make a well and pour the milk and honey into the center of the flour and butter mixture.
Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until moistened, it will look like this.
Turn out onto a floured surface and gently turn the dough into a ball.
Roll into a square. approximately 1-inch thick and cut into 12 equal portions.
NOTE: I normally just cut squares or cut out circles, but that kid of mine wanted flower biscuits, so that is what I made… I did make a few squares though.. just for the hubbyman.
Bake for 12-13 minutes
Mix honey into the butter and melt.
Brush the tops and serve.
