Honey Biscuits from Scratch

If you wanted to make our easiest Mayonnaise Biscuits version and drizzle honey over the top you could do that as well. Yet a third option you can try to see which you like better. I will say that starting from the beginning with fresh, cold, even frozen butter makes all the difference when it comes to baking this hand held bread.

There are tips and tricks to baking fluffy muffins. If you follow the steps stated below vs. mixing too much and rolling rolling until flat you would notice that the latter would be more flat. I mean it wouldn’t be ruined but we all want the moist fluff right?? We go over in more detail in How to Make Biscuits From Scratch.

Now below we share how to make the dough quickly, as drop biscuits. In the case that you wanted to make Bisquick Butter Swim Biscuits you’d want to follow these steps. Only difference would be to change 1 stick of butter to 4 tbsp instead + 4 tbsp honey. You’d microwave together to combine and pour that on top instead to add sweetness.

  1. 2 1/4 cups Bisquick
  2. 2/3 cup Milk or water
  3. 2 tsp Brown Sugar
  4. 4 tbsp Butter
  5. 2/3 cup Pure Local Honey
  6. If you want really sweet you could incorporate berries like Blueberry Biscuits

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Prep baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl mix together Bisquick mix, water and milk together until you have a dough, NO longer (over-mixing will make them not as fluffy). Spoon on to prepped baking sheet with space between them and bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned on top and fluffy in the center.

Add butter, brown sugar and honey into a bowl and microwave for 45 seconds, stir so it is a smooth mixture with sugar dissolved as much as possible. Could add other tweaks like pumpkin pie spice or others to make say Cinnamon Biscuits. Pour over the top of each one.

Biscuits with Honey Butter

To make the best version of these you need to start with the basics. Flour, salt, baking soda, buttermilk and frozen butter is what you need. This is for the basic biscuit dough which is important to ONLY mix together until combined but still shaggy. Remember that working it too much will result in flatter pieces.

  • 3 c all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 c unsalted butter frozen, grated + 1 tbsp melted for top
  • 1 c buttermilk
  • 1/4 c honey + 1 tbsp for top
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla

You will need a bowl to mix the flour mixture, baking sheet lined with parchment paper is ideal and very lightly floured cutting board to press the cutter in (without twisting – key) to get shaped. If you want to make these into Whataburger Honey Butter Chicken Biscuits you’d just fry chicken to go into the center.

Put your unsalted or salted butter into the freezer for 20 minutes so it is nice and firm and easy to grate with a cheese grater later. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and lay parchment paper on top of your baking sheet.

  • Add dry ingredients into a bowl and mix.
  • Take cold butter out and grate right into the bowl immediately.
  • Use a pastry cutter to incorporate, or use hands.
  • In another bowl mix together buttermilk, vanilla and honey.
  • Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients and pour this inside. Use a spoon or your hands to combine JUST until the dry ingredients are incorporated, NO longer.
  • Very lightly flour a cutting board and pour dough out.
  • Use your palms (ideally) to press into a flat 1 – 1 1/2 inch thick all the way across
    • don’t want to overwork it or they won’t be as fluffy
  • Use a round biscuit cutter, 3 inches is ideal, to press firmly (do not twist) out biscuits.
  • Set on prepared baking sheet with some space in between them and bake for 12-13 minutes just until tops are lightly browned and middle is no longer sticky.

Remove, transfer to a cooling rack and melt remaining 1 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp melted butter together until smooth. Whisk together and pour on top of each one, serve. OR serve with Huckleberry Jam to spread on them, or both. Now jump to recipe and let us know how much you enjoy them below!

How to Save Leftover Biscuits

After baking, let them cool down to room temperature before storing them. This helps prevent condensation from forming inside the storage container, which could make them soggy.

  1. Transfer the leftover biscuits to an airtight container. If you have a lot, you can layer them with parchment paper or wax paper to prevent sticking. Make sure the container is properly sealed to keep air and moisture out.
    • you can also use a resealable plastic bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible before sealing the bag.
  2. If you plan to consuming them within a day or two, storing them at room temperature in an airtight container should be sufficient. However, if you want to keep them for a longer period, it’s recommended to store them in the refrigerator, this helps slow down the staling process.
  3. Add moisture like a brush of butter to the top before heading.
  4. Reheat leftover biscuits in oven to 350°F, wrap in aluminum foil, and warm them in the oven for about 10 minutes. Or place them in a microwave for about 10-15 seconds per.
  5. Enjoy with a spread like Instant Pot Pumpkin Butter on top.

If you’re looking to use them up, consider making dishes like sandwiches, breakfast casseroles, bread pudding, or even turning them into croutons for soups and salads.
