Default Warm Biscuits and Fresh Honey

Well, the sky has opened up and it's seriously raining here now! Something about this weather here this morning made me hungry for some fresh warm biscuits.
So about an hour ago I decided to make a batch of some quick and easy biscuit dough and made 'em drop style.

Into the hot oven and about twelve minutes later Mmmmmm........................!!!!

I quickly brushed them with a lil butter to well, you know, make 'em even more delicious!

Then I carefully cut a couple open and buttered them and then drizzled on some FRESH Labeeman's honey.

I'll have to stop here for a moment................. There now! Here's one last picture for you.

Ohhhh..... man! That honey is awesomely delicious!!!!! The only thing I have left to say about this is that if you didn't have this today, you really missed out big time. I might have to go and have a couple more!!!!!!!!

Here you go! These were King Arthur Flour Never Fail Biscuits

I will tell you that I didn't follow the tiny scoop idea they have. I used like a four oz. server scoop and they did require a little morre time to bake but they are good and tender. You may also need to use more heavy whipping cream. I doubled the recipe for the bigger biscuits.

Using either honey or Louisiana cane syrup(which I also do)or some good fig preserves or Louisiana Mayhaw jelly it's ALL good!!!!


Tips from our bakers
  • Pat the dough 3/4" thick and cut biscuits with a cutter, if desired.
  • For larger biscuits, simply scoop the dough into 1 1/2-ounce balls, to make 8 biscuits; or 2-ounce balls, to make 6. Bake the larger biscuits a minute or so longer, or until they're baked all the way through.
  • This recipe is ridiculously easy to scale up (or down). Simply use equal amounts of flour and heavy cream, by weight; each biscuit uses about 1 ounce of dough. So if you use, say, 4 ounces of flour and 4 ounces of cream, you'll make 8 biscuits. Or 12 ounces (3 cups) of flour, 12 ounces (1 1/2 cups) of cream — 24 biscuits.
  • Feel free to stir the additions of your choice into the dough. Berries, cheese cubes, crumbled bacon or diced ham, chopped scallions, chocolate chips, dried fruit... use your imagination!
  • To make now, serve later, place shaped/unbaked biscuits close together on a small baking sheet; place the sheet in the freezer, and freeze until solid. Transfer the biscuits to an airtight container (plastic bag, etc.) When you're ready to serve, there's no need to thaw the biscuits; remove them from the freezer and bake as directed above, adding a few minutes to the baking time.
Directions

see this recipe's blog »
1) Preheat the oven to 450°F, with a rack in the top third.
2) Mix the flour and cream until smooth and cohesive.
3) Scoop 1-ounce balls of dough onto an ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheet; a tablespoon cookie scoop works well here. Leave a couple of inches between them.
4) Brush the tops of the biscuits with cream, milk, or water; this will help them rise.
5) Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes, until they're light golden brown on top, and baked all the way through; break one open to make sure.
6) Remove the biscuits from the oven, and serve warm, or at room temperature. Store, well-wrapped, at room temperature for several days; freeze for longer storage.
Yield: 12 biscuits.
