It’s a Saturday morning. You have your cup of coffee (or cocoa…with marshmallows…extra marshmallows…) and your stomach is growling. Your kids, or furkids, are asking for breakfast, and you decide that you’re going to bake some biscuits. Maybe make some gravy, maybe top it with jam, make an egg and turkey sausage sandwich, or smear some delicious raw honey on top. Honey on top of hot, flaky biscuits is my absolute favorite. It literally melts in your mouth. YUM!
I decided I was going to make some of these delicious (and super easy) biscuits this morning. During the week of Thanksgiving, the family and myself went up to Gatlinburg, TN. While we were there, we purchased some creamed honey from a local farm and got some stone-ground flour from the Old Mill. I have to say, it makes these biscuits even more special to us!
Side note…we were walking the streets of Gatlinburg 24 hours before the hundred-year fire engulfed that beautiful city. We stayed in a cabin that burned down. We were so grateful that we left early, but are so sad that happened. Thankfully, they’re rebuilding and most businesses are reopened by now.
Anyways, back to food. Because, food.
- 2 cups flour, plus extra for the counter/dough board
- 2 tsp of sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder (to make your own, 1 tsp baking soda & 2 tsp cream of tartar)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 3/4 cup of heavy cream
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Whisk together all dry ingredients. Add cream and knead together until smooth. Sprinkle flour on countertop or dough board and turn out dough. Roll out dough until approximately 3/4″ high. Use a biscuit cutter, or a cup if you don’t have one, to create your biscuits. Place them evenly apart on your baking sheet.
- Bake for 7 minutes, then rotate your pan and bake for 8 more minutes to ensure the whole top of the biscuit browns. Once they are done, place them on a cooling rack. Wait about 5 minutes for them to cool, then slather them up with a spread of your choice and enjoy!
