Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons honey
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Add butter and knead with your fingers until mixture resembles coarse meal. Chill 10 min. (I didn't do this)
3. Combine buttermilk and honey, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture. Stir until moist.(I just added the buttermilk and honey separately, stirring until moist.
4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 3 times. Roll dough into a 1/2 inch thick 9" X 5" rectangle. Cut with biscuit cutter and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and and enjoy.
