IntroductionLayered, flaky, slighty sweet biscuts Layered, flaky, slighty sweet biscuts
2 cups flour
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 Tbs butter - in small pieces
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 Tbs honey (make sure it is in liquid form)
Combine buttermilk & honey. You will need to stir until honey dissolves and buttermilk is the color of light caramel. Add to chilled flour mixture - stirring gently with a fork or spatula just until moistened.
Turn onto lightly floured surface. Knead just until combined. Roll dough into a 9” x 5” rectangle. Sprinkle with a light dusting of flour, spreading with fingers. Fold dough into thirds - as if folding a letter. Re-roll dough again into a 9” x 5” rectangle. Dust top lightly with flour once again. For the second time, fold dough into thirds as before. Roll to 3/4” thickness. Cut dough with biscuit cutter, or cut into squares. Place one inch apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes - watching closely near end of baking time.
