Cream Biscuits and Honey Butter

Cream Biscuits

1 3/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 Tb sugar
1 Tb baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6 Tb chilled unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
3/4 cup chilled heavy whipping cream

Preheat over to 450 degrees. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into large mixing bowl. Rub in butter with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add whipping cream and stir until just combined (do not overmix). Turn dough out onto lightly floured work surface and knead just until dough holds together about 5 turns. Pat out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Using floured 3/4-1 inch diameter cutter, cut out biscuits. Gather dough scraps and pat out to 1/4 inch thickness. Gather dough scraps and pat out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out additional biscuits. Repeat gathering, patting out, and cutting out biscuits until all dough is used. Transfer biscuits to ungreased baking sheet. Bake until golder brown, about 10 minutes.

1/4 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup honey
