Warm, Sweet, Buttery and Flaky Biscuits
Have you heard of this incredible fried chicken fast food chain called Church’s Chicken? I’m not sure where you are in the world and if Church’s Chicken is a national/worldwide chain restaurant. It’s worth a visit if there is one near you. The honey biscuits are to die for. The biscuits are soft, sweet, buttery and addictive. Something that good has got to be sinful. Lucky for you I have the copycat recipe to make those fantastic honey butter biscuits.
I usually do all of the mixing in my Kitchen Aid mixer. Boy, was I spoiled. Making honey butter biscuits from scratch and by hand is challenging. Talk about an arm workout while mixing the butter and dough. If you have an electric mixer then use it! I highly recommend the easy route. For this video, I did everything by hand for the general population. After this video, I encourage everyone to get a Kitchen Aid mixer if you do a lot of baking and mixing. Your arm will thank you and your food will be more consistent.
Something You Should Know
Here is a tip you should know when making these yummy biscuits. If you use salted butter, then don’t add salt to the biscuit dough. You don’t want salty biscuits. It makes a huge difference. I learned that in the very beginning when I first started baking. Now I always buy unsalted butter as a habit. You can always add more salt but you can’t take the salt back out.
Another thing to remember when making these biscuits is to not be stingy on the honey butter glaze. The biscuits need a good glaze to hold the flavor. That is why I dip the entire biscuits into the honey butter glaze instead of brushing it on the fresh baked biscuits. Just go all the way with these babies. Dip the biscuits in the glaze.
