How to make it

  • Place flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cream of tarter in a mixing bowl. Work in shortening until the mixture feels like cornmeal.
  • Pour milk into flour and mix well. Knead about 12-15 times. Break dough into about 1/4 to 1/3 cup size balls. Roll dough into balls and pat to 1/2 inch thickness. Brush with melted butter and place on a baking sheet.
  • Place biscuits into a 450 degree preheated oven and bake 10 to 12 minutes.
  • While biscuits are in oven, pour the honey into the remainder of the butter and bring to a boil.
  • Remove honey butter from heat and set aside. When biscuits are done remove from oven and immediately brush with honey butter.
  • Serve with your favorite fried chicken dinner or they are really wonderful for breakfast.

    i saw the pic of the biscuits cut. it looks like the layer biscuits i buy. will prob cut mine if i make these. ive been looking for a honey butter biscuit. didnt know if you put the honey and butter on afterward, or baked it intothe biscuit
    sounds llike a good recipe although i always use butter for the fat, not shortening. and i usually just make the biscuits into balls, but will try the cutting method

    It's a good biscuit but I don't agree with the forming method.
