Perfectly Flaky Honey Butter Biscuits

"Let me paint a honey butter biscuits picture for you. Imagine a biscuit that is so tender, so perfectly sweet, and so flaky it just melts in your mouth. Now pour some rich honey butter glaze on it! Does it get any better than that? My family is obsessed with these biscuits. We love a standard biscuit and even a cheddar biscuit here and there, but these cream cheese biscuits with a sweet glaze take the cake. "

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 ounces Cream cheese, chilled
  • 1/4 cup Butter, chilled
  • 1 cup Buttermilk, chilled
  • 3/4 cup Butter
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  1. To make your honey butter biscuits, start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees.

  2. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper. Set it aside.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and whisk to combine.

  4. Add the chilled cream cheese and butter and cut them into the flour mixture using a pastry blender or a fork.

  5. Continue cutting the mixture until it resembles coarse sand with pea-sized pieces of butter and cream cheese remaining.

  6. Add in the buttermilk and stir until just combined.

  7. Turn the dough out onto a clean countertop and knead until a ball of dough forms.

  8. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out to about ¾ inches in thickness.

  9. Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter to cut out 8 biscuits from your dough.

  10. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 11-12 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown.

  11. While the biscuits bake, whisk together the butter and the honey in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat.

  12. Continue stirring your glaze until the butter is melted.

  13. Remove the glaze from the heat and set aside until the biscuits are fully baked.

  14. Remove the biscuits from the oven and immediately brush them with the glaze generously.

  15. Split the biscuits open and serve warm with extra honey butter glaze.
