Lemon Rosemary Biscuits with Lemon-Honey Butter

I’m thrilled to introduce you to my newest food contributor, Sarah of The Homemade Haus. If you don’t already follow her, you’re going to rectify that immediately. Your kitchen, friends, and family, will thank you for it. 

Lemon + Rosemary Biscuits with Lemon-Honey Butter-10
This time of year, I still crave comfort food, which for me means anything buttery and straight out of the oven. But I also find myself looking forward to the bright, fresh flavors of spring. This recipe – warm, lightly sweetened biscuits dotted with flecks of lemon zest and rosemary – is the best of both worlds. My favorite way to enjoy them is with copious amounts of lemon-honey butter (or sometimes an big spoonful of raspberry jam) and a steaming cup of herbal tea. Enjoy, Sarah

Ingredients
  1. FOR THE BISCUITS
  2. 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, plus a little extra for rolling out the dough
  3. ¼ cup granulated sugar
  4. 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  5. ¾ teaspoons kosher salt
  6. ½ teaspoon baking soda
  7. 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
  8. 1 Tablespoon lemon zest
  9. ½ cup (1 stick) cold, unsalted butter, diced
  10. 1 cup buttermilk, plus a little extra for the top of the biscuits
  11. FOR THE LEMON HONEY BUTTER
  12. ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  13. ¼ cup honey
  14. 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Instructions
  1. FOR THE BISCUITS
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or use a silicone baking mat), and set aside.
  3. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, soda, rosemary, and lemon zest to a food processor. Pulse until combined.
  4. Add the diced butter to the food processor, and pulse a few times until the mixture looks like coarse meal. There should still be pea-sized bits of butter throughout the flour mixture.
  5. Add the buttermilk and pulse just until the dough starts to come together. You don’t want to overmix, otherwise the biscuits will be dense. It’s OK to still see small bits of butter in the dough.
  6. Spread a bit of flour on your work surface. Turn the dough out on the floured surface, and pat it into a rectangle, about ¾ inch thick. Fold the dough over and pat it down gently again. Fold it over one more time, and pat it down until it’s ¾ inch thick again. (Be careful not to overwork the dough beyond this.)
  7. Use a 2 ½ inch biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits. Reroll the dough scraps as needed and continue to cut out more biscuits until all the dough is used.
  8. Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, leaving space in between each one. Brush the tops with buttermilk or milk (this helps them brown).
  9. FOR THE LEMON HONEY BUTTER
  10. Mix together all the ingredients until smooth. (I prefer to do this with a stand mixer or handheld mixer.) Transfer to a small bowl or dish, or spoon the butter onto plastic wrap, roll into a log shape, and wrap it up tightly. Store in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use.

    These lemon rosemary biscuits sound SO good! I basically love anything with rosemary – such a lovely flavor.

    These look absolutely amazing! I’ve never made biscuits before though. How long does it take to do the prep work? Anything that takes too long is a challenge with a 9 month old tugging on your leg!

      haha I can only imagine! I would set aside around 30 mins for prep. Nap time, maybe? ;)
