Biscuits and Honey Butter

Can I have a show of hands of who has totally given up on my blog and thought that I would never blog again??
Yeah...that's what I thought!  I'm so going to have to beg and plead for you to come back to me huh??
Well...I will do my best!
You see...I have many exciting things coming up and I just can't stand it!
One of my Besties is getting married and guess who is the wedding planner!!!
Yes...yours truly:)  
I've been busy going to a million antique stores and scouting anything and everything I can find on Vintage Weddings...its gonna be awesome!!  I hope:)

 Anyway...here is part one of getting my favorite people to read my blog again.  Biscuits and CINNAMON honey butter.  Oh yeah!  I pretty much just took a scoop of the butter and drank it.  It was that good.  Ok...I didn't really drink it...but I did douse it on my biscuit.  And yes...they really do get THAT big!  The only trick I have for you so they DO get that big is that when you are using your biscuit cutter...AKA...glass cup...DO NOT TWIST the cup.  You will be SO tempted to.  But don't.  It will make the biscuits go all weird.  Don't know why but they do.  So just push the cup down all the way.  

Big Daddy Biscuits
Source:  All Recipes


2 c. all-purpose flour
1 TBS baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 TBS sugar
1/3 c. shortening
1 c. milk

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.  Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal.  Gradually stir in milk until dowgh pulls away from the side of the bowl.

Turn out onto a floured surface, and knead 15-20 times.  Pat or roll dough out to 1" thick.  Cut biscuits with a large cutter or juice glass dipped in flour.  Repeat until all dough is used.  Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet. 

Bake 13-15 minutes in oven, or until edges begin to brown.

Cinnamon Honey Butter

2 sticks butter (I used salted)
1 c. powdered sugar
1 c. honey
2 tsp. cinnamon

Use the whisk attachment for your mixer and whip the butter (make sure it's soft and room temperature).  Add to it the powdered sugar, then the honey then the cinnamon.  Whip it really well.  Scrape the sides and whip it again.  Then put it into one big jar or cute little 4 oz. jars (6 to be exact)...use it for yourself or give as a gift.

  2. Thanks for the great recipe! Where do you store your honey butter? Does it get too hard in the fridge?

  3. Thanks Rebecca! Sometimes it is hard to find a good balance!! Hopefully I will find that soon:)

    Jamey...I just store my honey butter in the fridge. It gets soft pretty quickly...and if you put it on some hot biscuits...it melts and is perfect!!
