Recipe Ingredients for Honey Shortcake Biscuits

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (10 ounces--white whole wheat or traditional)
1/2 cup bread flour (2 1/8--ounces King Arthur Unbleached Bread Flour)
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter (COLD--1 stick 4oz)
3 tablespoons (2 1/4 ounces) honey
1 large egg
3/4 cup (6 ounces) buttermilk

Recipe Directions for Honey Shortcake Biscuits

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, salt, baking powder and baking soda. With a pastry fork or cutter, or using an electric mixer, cut in the butter until the flour mixture is crumbly. In a small bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and honey. Add, all at once, to the flour mixture, and blend lightly and quickly with a fork until the mixture is evenly moistened.

  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface, and fold the dough over on itself three or four times, until it comes together.

  4. Pat the dough out (or roll very lightly with a rolling pin) into a 9" square (3/4"-thick). Cut the dough into 16 squares, and transfer the biscuits to the prepared baking sheet.

  5. While this next step is optional, it gives the biscuits a lovely, shiny, tasty crust. In a small microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the glaze ingredients. The Fiori di Sicilia, while optional, will give the biscuits a lovely citrus-vanilla accent. Place the bowl in the microwave, and microwave very briefly (maybe 15 to 20 seconds), until the glaze is very hot and starting to bubble. Remove it from the microwave, give it a stir, and brush it over the biscuits.

  6. Bake the biscuits for 20 to 22 minutes, until the tops are golden brown. Remove them from the oven and serve warm, or cool on a rack. Yield: 16 biscuits.

  7. To make biscuits using all-purpose flour: Substitute 3 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour for the whole wheat and bread flours. Reduce the buttermilk to 2/3 cup.

  8. To make biscuits using milk, rather than buttermilk: Increase the baking powder to 1 tablespoon, and eliminate the baking soda.

  9. Optional Glaze:

  10. 1/4 cup (1 3/4 ounces) sugar

  11. 1/4 teaspoon Fiori di Sicilia (optional)

  12. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  13. 2 teaspoons water
