I grew up eating them for breakfast with a dab of butter and a spread of jam or a big spoonful of sausage gravy. Mmmm! We also serve them alongside homestyle meals such as fried chicken, beef stew and meatloaf. Comfort food classics made even better with a biscuit by their side!

Tender, Healthy, Biscuit Perfection

They’re made healthier and heartier from the whole wheat flour, but still super tender with a nice fluff in every bite. A little butter goes a long way as they have the most amazing buttery texture to compliment the sweetness of the honey and the slight saltiness throughout. Biscuit perfection! They keep well for a few days and are awesome when sliced and reheated under the broiler for a few minutes with a little butter & honey melting on top. Heavenly!

Pat the dough out onto the floured surface to about 1-inch thickness. Cut into circles with a round cutter and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Gather remaining dough and repeat cutting into rounds until all dough has been used.

In a small bowl, whisk together the other 2 tablespoons melted butter and 1 tablespoon honey. Brush onto biscuits. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown around the edges and on top.

  1. i haven’t mad the biscuits yet, but I would like to know if I can substitute sea salt for kosher salt?

    1. Hi Henrietta! Yes, I often substitute and it works great. I find that sea salt makes them a little saltier. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Brandie! Yes, you certainly can. I would recommend whole milk, if possible, for the fat content, but skim milk will work just fine. The texture of the biscuits will be lighter. I hope this helps. Enjoy!
