DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Chill 10 minutes.
  • Combine buttermilk and honey, stirring with a whisk until well blended. Add buttermilk mixture to flour mixture; stir just until moist.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times.
  • Roll dough into a (1/2-inch-thick) 9 x 5–inch rectangle; dust top of dough with flour.
  • Fold dough crosswise into thirds (as if folding a piece of paper to fit into an envelope).
  • Reroll dough into a (1/2-inch-thick) 9 x 5–inch rectangle; dust top of dough with flour.
  • Fold dough crosswise into thirds; gently roll or pat to a 3/4-inch thickness.
  • Cut dough with a 1 3/4-inch biscuit cutter to form 14 dough rounds.
  • Place dough rounds, 1 inch apart, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove from pan; cool 2 minutes on wire racks. Serve warm.
