Church’s Honey Butter Biscuits

HONEY BUTTER BISCUITS — Light, soft drop biscuits are brushed with honey butter, baked to golden brown, then coated in more honey butter for a delicious, sweet bread that will have everyone asking for seconds!

My oldest son recently returned from a two year church service mission to the South (Florida, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi), and one of the things he asked me to recreate when he came home were these Church’s Chicken Honey Butter Biscuits.

Oh my goodness! I’m so glad he requested that I give these biscuits a try. We don’t have a Church’s Chicken anywhere close in Colorado, and I have to say, we’ve been missing out. At least when it comes to honey butter biscuits.

I mean, biscuits are pretty great to begin with, and when you slather them in honey butter…..well, it just doesn’t get much better than that.

And since this is a drop biscuit recipe, there’s no need to deal with rolling the dough. You just shape it into balls, brush everything with honey butter, and bake until golden brown.


For the biscuits

2 cups flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1/2 cup cold butter, diced

2/3 cup milk

For the honey butter

4 tablespoons butter

1/3 cup honey


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cream of tartar. Cut in butter until the mixture resembles cornmeal. Add the milk and mix well. Knead dough about 15 times.

Divide dough into 1/4 cup size portions. Roll into balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Pat to about 1/2 inch thickness.

In a medium saucepan, combine ingredients for honey butter. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Brush biscuits with a thin layer of honey butter.

Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush immediately with more honey butter before serving warm.
