Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits

2 1/4 c white flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
5 TBSP unsalted butter
1 c buttermilk
1/2 TBSP honey

Add flour, salt, and baking powder to a medium bowl. Stir to combine. Cut butter into small pieces and add to bowl. Use a fork (and/or your fingers if needed) to mash the butter into the flour until the dough forms pea-sized crumbles.

Mix milk and honey in a measuring cup. Add milk to flour mixture and lightly knead, just until moistened. Form a ball and put in the freezer for 10 minutes to chill.

Heat oven to 450 degrees. On a floured cutting board, lightly roll dough out into a rectangle about 1/2" thick, and 6"x4". Cut once the long way, and twice the short way to make 6 even squares or use a biscuit or cookie cutter to cut into shapes. Place on a baking sheet lightly sprayed with cooking spray and bake 10-12 minutes until golden.

Who says a girl from the North can't make a good biscuit? These are light, flaky, and full of sweet buttery goodness.
