Get a jumpstart & make them early in the week as they can be frozen & baked anytime. Score big with this Southern icon at your next tailgating social.

The Basic Fundamentals 

 A hint of sweetness & buttery notes make these biscuits irresistible. Freeze the cut biscuits on a sheet pan & place in zip top bags. Store in the freezer up to one month. Bake the desired number of biscuits, as directed, increasing the bake time by a few minutes, if necessary. If preparing the entire batch from the frozen state, place 1/2-inch apart on two sheet pans for the best results.

4 3/4 cups soft-wheat flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 3/4 tsp table salt
1 cup cold butter, cut into small cubes
1 1/3 cups plus 1 Tbsp whole milk
2 Tbsp honey
Melted butter

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Whisk together the flour, the baking powder & the salt in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender until it resembles the size of small peas. Whisk together 1 1/3 cups milk & the honey. Blend the milk mixture into the flour mixture just until a sticky dough comes together.

Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured surface & knead 2 to 3 times. Pat the dough to 1/2-inch thickness & portion with a 2-inch round cutter. Place on a lightly greased half sheet pan with the edges just touching. Reroll the dough & repeat. The pan will be full. Brush the remaining 1 Tbsp milk over the dough tops. Place in the oven & reduce the temperature to 400 degrees. Bake on the middle oven rack 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush with melted butter, if desired.

The Extra Point

An old-fashioned breakfast of bacon, eggs & grits upgrades instantly with a few of these southern favorites on the plate. Split the biscuits & spread with blackberry preserves or drizzle with sorghum.

How To Make Tender Biscuits

Good biscuits come down to technique & how much or little the dough is handled.
Follow this valuable tip for success in your own kitchen.

Once the buttermilk is added, work the dough as little as possible. Use a rubber spatula to blend the ingredients together by swiping it around the edges of the bowl & folding it over itself several times. The dough should be loose & sticky. Turn the dough out onto a heavily floured surface & sprinkle the top with flour as well. Knead the dough just a few times & it’s ready to cut into party-size biscuits.
