Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe



Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe with Honey Butter

Ingredients

FOR THE BISCUITS

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 4 oz COLD butter, cut into 1/2 tablespoon sized pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 Tablespoons honey

FOR HONEY BUTTER

  • 4 oz. (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons honey

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degree.
  • In a large bowl, whisk all of the dry ingredients until combined.
  • Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Try not to overwork the butter, keeping it as cold as possible.
  • Add buttermilk and honey and mix with a fork until dough forms a ball (it will be sticky)
  • Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead 4-5 times, adding flour if needed to prevent sticking.
  • Roll out into a 9” diameter circle and cut out biscuits with a 2” biscuit cutter that’s been dipped into flour. Place onto a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper.
  • Brush tops of biscuit with buttermilk to help with browning.
  • Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until nicely browned on top.

FOR HONEY BUTTER

  • In a small bowl, combine the softened butter and the honey until smooth and creamy.
