Honey Biscuits


2 C. Flour
4 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Sugar
1/2 C. Vegetable Shortening
1 tsp Cream of Tarter
2/3 C. Whole Milk
1/2 Stick of Butter (melt in small pan and set aside)
1/3 C. 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 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.
