Dark Chocolate, Honey, and Sea Salt Drop Biscuits
Makes 6-8 biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp plus ½ tsp granulated sugar
3 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp table salt
6 tbsp unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
1¼ cups buttermilk
1 tbsp honey
¾ cup dark chocolate chunks, heaping
¼ tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 425. Grease baking sheet with cooking spray. Combine flour, 1 tbsp sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and table salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into the dry ingredients until incorporated. Add buttermilk and honey and stir to combine. Fold in chocolate until just combined. Meanwhile, combine reserved ½ tsp of sugar with ¼ tsp sea salt. Scoop dough onto baking sheet in 1/3 cupfuls. Sprinkle each biscuit with the sugar-sea salt mixture. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Biscuits are best eaten the day of.
*I admit that this is also entirely negotiable, considering scones may have savory ingredients, too, but let’s save this back-and-forth for another post.
