It doesn’t get much more comforting than buttery biscuits if you ask me. I love to serve them with soup, like my Panera Chicken Noodle Soup. We also make them as an easy breakfast and enjoy them with a drizzle of honey or dollup of jelly.

What sets these biscuits apart from other recipes is they are topped with a homemade honey butter glaze that is going to rock your world….seriously!

Expert Tips

  • Don’t worry if the dough seems crumbly when you first get started. This is normal, just keep kneading. That will bring the dough together.
  • Be sure not to knead too much or the biscuits will become dense.
  • The glaze is also delicious when you refrigerate it and spread it on the honey biscuits while it’s cold.


What do I do if I don’t have buttermilk?

You can swap buttermilk for whole milk or use half and half. The flavor and texture is going to vary slightly if you don’t use buttermilk.

How do you make buttermilk?

Combine one cup of milk or half and half. Then mix in 1 teaspoon of white vinegar or lemon juice. Let the mixture set for 10 minutes then it’s ready to use.

Can you store biscuits for later?

The honey biscuits can be kept at room temperature for 1-2 days. Be sure to keep them air tight so they don’t become dry.

How do you warm up biscuits?

Place on a microwave safe plate and heat up for 10-15 seconds. Or place in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-8 minutes or until they are warm.
