2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
2/3 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons butter (melt in small pan and set aside)
1/3 cup honey


Place flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cream of tarter in a mixing bowl. Work in the shortening until the mixture feels like cornmeal. Pour milk into flour and mix well. Knead about 12 - 15 times.

Break dough into about 1/4 -1/3 cup size balls. Roll dough into balls and pat to 1/2" thickness. Brush with melted butter and place on a baking sheet.

Place biscuits into a 450 degrees F preheated oven and bake 10 - 12 minutes. While biscuits are in the oven, pour the honey into the remainder of the butter and bring to a boil. Remove honey butter from heat and set aside. When biscuits are done remove from the oven and immediately brush with honey butter.

Seems like way too much baking powder. I think i'll try it but with only 1 or 2 tsp baking powder.

Easy to make and bake, but they taste dry and are crumbly.

OH MY GOSH!!! THIS IS IT! the recipe i have been looking for. i have tried other biscuit recipes which ended up still tasting doughy and "floured" on top. i did omit the salt in the recipe but other thn that it did taste just like the restarant's ( though the tops didn't brown at all). i think the secret w/this recipe....just enough milk to pull the "cornmealed flour mixture" together w/o leaving it wet and sticky. thanks so much. i have found something better than the refrigerated brand ( that will also be CHEAPER to make).plan on trying other recipes as well to see how they turn out

I made this recipes and was more than pleased. It was very close to the product. Thank you for sharing! I did not roll them though, I made them like regular cut biscuits.
