Gather the Ingredients

You will need all-purpose flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cream of tartar, cold butter, honey, eggs, and buttermilk.


Dry Ingredients

Mix all of the dry ingredients, flour sugar, salt, baking powder, and cream of tartar, together in a large bowl.


Cut in the Butter

Cut the butter in by using a pastry blender, a whisk, or a food processor. Whichever tool you use, make sure you break up the butter into small chunks.


Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl, whisk the honey, egg and buttermilk together. If needed, heat the honey up in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.


Combine Ingredients

Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and mix until just moistened.


Roll Out the Dough

Place the dough on a floured surface and knead a couple of times. Pat the dough out to 1 inch thick rectangle.


Cut the Biscuits

Use a cup or a biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits. Place them on a baking sheet and bake for about 10-12 minutes until they are golden brown.


Bake the Biscuits

Remove the baked biscuits from the oven and let them cool for 1-2 minutes. Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter if desired.
