Honey Goat Cheese Biscuits


These biscuits are addicting, I think I could eat the whole pan. I am really glad I have D to share them with, otherwise I'd be hurting right now because I would have polished of the batch. These will challenge your self control or at least they did mine and since I am slightly lacking in that department, I lost.

Next time I make these I am going to add a whole tablespoon of honey rather than just the half. These biscuits had a just a touch of sweetness on top and I like things a bit more on the sweet side, if you do too I would suggest upping the amount of honey to a full tablespoon or maybe even a tablespoon and a half. These biscuit taste best when they are fresh out of the oven. They are delicious with a cup of coffee or tea for breakfast or as an accompaniment to dinner.
 
Honey Goat Cheese Biscuits
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
4 tablespoons Powdered Buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
4 tablespoons Unsalted Butter Cold and Sliced
1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter for Pan
1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter for the Top
1/2-1 1/2 tablespoons Honey, depending on your preference
4 tablespoons Goat Cheese
1 cup Water

Note: Liquid buttermilk can be used in place of powdered, just use where recipe calls for water.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Put 1 tablespoon of butter in a medium sized ceramic dish then place dish in the oven to melt the butter, be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn. Once butter has melted remove dish from the oven swirl butter around to coat, then set aside. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour baking powder, powdered buttermilk and salt. Cut 4 tablespoons of cold butter and the goat cheese into the flour mixture till crumbly. Stir in the water just to combined. Drop 1/4 cup sized heaps of dough into the prepared dish. Melt remaining tablespoon of butter and honey in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Once butter has melted, drizzle mixture over the biscuits and bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden.
