Easy Honey Butter Biscuits come together in about 20 minutes using pantry staples. Kid-approved!
These quick biscuits are a family favorite. The best part is since they are drop biscuits they are super quick and easy to make. This is a great starter recipe for kids, my four-year-old loves mixing and measuring the ingredients (with some help).
Techniques for Amazing Easy Honey Butter Biscuits
- Mix to combine. Over mixing biscuits can make them tough. For perfect biscuits, stir to combine, the mixture will still be lumpy.
- Go easy on the honey butter glaze. I don’t prefer my biscuits as sweet as my family does, so I serve most of the glaze on the side so they can pile it on.
- Get your hands messy. A fork will work, but it’s so much easier (and more fun!) to mash the butter into the flour with your fingers.
