Last night I spotted a familiar brand from Georgia at Costco. Right there with the honey was Savannah Bee Company Honeycomb. If you know me, I am a little bit obsessed with honey. Nick knows if I see a honey stand or honey shop, I cannot resist. Now, most of the time we just eat the honeycomb with a spoon straight from the box, but I absolutely love cooking with it.
You can add honeycomb to almost anything. It gives your recipe a sweet crunch. This morning I made Buttermilk Biscuits with honeycomb, and glazed them with a honeycomb butter.
- 2c Flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 tbsp honeycomb
- 6 tbsp butter (cold, in cubes)
- 1 c buttermilk (cold)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp honeycomb
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the 6 tbsp of cubed cold butter and 4 tbsp of honeycomb. Slowly add the cold buttermilk. Flour a flat surface (I like to lay out freezer paper on the counter). Scrape dough onto floured surface. Sprinkle flour onto dough. Knead dough a few times. I like to pat out the dough to about 1 inch thickness, but you can also use a roller. Use a biscuit cutter to cut biscuits, and place them on a baking sheet.
Melt the 2 tbsp of butter, and then add the 1 tbsp of honeycomb. Use a fork or whisk until well blended. Take a silicone basting brush and coat each biscuit with the honeycomb butter glaze.
Bake for 15 minutes (or until edges are golden).
*we are at a higher altitude, so if you’re at a lower altitude you could bake at a lower temp for less time. (ex:@ 450° for 10 min)
This morning we made breakfast sandwiches with these biscuits. We used pronghorn sausage, fried eggs, and in lieu of jelly I spread the honeycomb with butter on the biscuit. Doesn’t get any better for breakfast!
We sat around the breakfast table, cheered in the new year with some sparkling grape juice, and all went around the table telling God what we were most thankful for this past year. I love sitting at the table creating memories like these. Good food is just the cherry on top!
I wish everyone a blessed and happy new year!
