Move over “Pillsbury Partially-hydrogenated oil and who knows what else is in there, Biscuits“.. Get the real deal here. These will come out with irresistible flaky layers. The honey is great here…I love these every time and make use of them for leftovers as well. For example peanut butter and jelly biscuits or I just use the biscuit for my sandwich in replace of bread. Not as easy as Pillsbury, but BETTER.
Makes about 14 Biscuits
2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
5 tbs chilled butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup fat-free buttermilk
3 tbs honey
1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; cut in butter with 2 knives until mixture is crumbly. Chill 10 mins.
3. Combine buttermilk and honey, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; stir just until moist.
4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times. Roll dough into a (1/2-inch thick) 9 by 5-inch rectangle; dust top of dough with flour. Fold dough crosswise into thirds (as if folding a piece of paper to fit into an envelope).
Reroll dough into a (1/2-inch-thick) 9 by 5-inch rectangle; dust top of dough with flour. Fold dough crosswise into thirds; gently roll to a 3/4-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 1 3/4-inch bisquit cutter to form 14 dough rounds. Place dough rounds, 1-inch apart, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400 F for 12 mins or until golden. Remove from pan; cool 2 mins on wire racks. Serve warm.
