Yummy Honey Buttermilk Biscuits that are buttery and delicious. Crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Ready in 20 minutes!
When I was younger, my sisters and I would have sleepovers at my grandparents house regularly. Breakfast was a big event to my grandma. She made fluffy scrambled eggs, crispy bacon and crunchy hash browns. But, my favorite part of this delicious homemade breakfast: the buttery, made-from-scratch Honey Buttermilk Biscuits.
The biscuits my grandma made were crunchy and buttery on the outside, moist and fluffy on the inside. The only thing that would make these biscuits even better would be a gooey drizzle of honey.
When making Honey Buttermilk Biscuits, its important to remember to use COLD butter. Prepare the butter before anything else, by cutting it into small cubes and putting it in the freezer until called for in the recipe.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl and the cut the butter in by using a pastry blender. I actually don’t own a pastry blender so I used a whisk. I pushed the whisk down to the bottom of the bowl, breaking up the butter into small chunks.

In a separate bowl, whisk the honey, egg and buttermilk together. I like to heat the honey up in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Doing this makes the honey easier to mix in. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can make a quick substitute by adding a tablespoon of vinegar to a measuring cup and filling to the one cup line with milk.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened.
Place the dough on a floured surface and knead a couple of times. Pat the dough out to 1 inch thickness. Use a cup to cut out the biscuits.
Place the biscuits on a parchment covered baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes. Take them out of the oven and let them cool a minute or two.
Serve the delicious Honey Buttermilk Biscuits with butter and honey. Enjoy!
