Susman Honey Biscuits

Biscuits sweet with honey and a touch of salt. The Susman family stopped by last night with some delicious treatsbfrom a local restaurant to see if I could recreate them.  These are close.  I am going to play with this recipe a bit.


2 cups all purpose flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

¼ tsp baking soda

Dash of salt

5 Tbsp cold unsalted butter

2 Tbsp honey

1 cup cold buttermilk

Little more flour for kneading surface


3 Tbsp salted butter, melted

2 Tbsp honey


Preheat the oven to 425 and lightly grease a large baking sheet.

In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.

Melt 3 tablespoons salted butter and honey in a small bowl and set aside.

Chop cold butter into pieces and add it to the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter until it looks like coarse crumbs. Pour in honey and mix for a few seconds.

Pour cold buttermilk into the center of the mixture. Mix until just combined, dough will be sticky.

Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and sprinkle with a little more flour on top. Knead dough 5-6 times and pat into a ½ inch-think circle.

Using a biscuit cutter, start to cut out biscuits. Kneading it as little as possible, you can rework dough scraps into a ball and shape it into a circle again. Cut out more biscuits.

Place biscuits on the baking sheet leaving about an inch in between.

Brush each biscuits with honey butter mixture.

Bake for 10-13 minutes until raised and golden brown.

As soon as you take the biscuits out of the oven, brush them with more honey butter mixture.
