Southern Honey Butter Cream Biscuits and Chocolate Gravy

Makes 6-7 biscuits and 2 cups of gravy

Ingredients

For the biscuits:

  • 1 3/4 cup self rising flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tbsp honey

For the Chocolate Gravy:

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 4 Tbs flour
  • 2 cups milk 2% or whole works best
  • 4 tbsp butter 1/2 stick

Instructions

For the biscuits:

  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  • Spray a baking sheet with non stick spray.
  • In a large bowl mix together flour and heavy cream until a dough ball forms.
  • Dust your counter with self rising flour and add your dough ball.
  • Fold and pat the dough a couple times in flour until it is no longer sticky and then roll out (using your hands or a rolling pin) to 1/2 inch thick. You should get 3 biscuits the first time then re-roll and get 3 more. Try not to handle the dough very much and don't roll it too thin! These are fluffy, thick biscuits!
  • Using a large biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits and place on baking sheet.
  • If you want the sides soft, place the biscuits side by side so they touch. If you want the edges slightly crispy ( that's how I like 'em!) space them apart.
  • In a small bowl mix warm melted butter with honey and using a basting brush, brush on the tops of each biscuit.
  • Bake for 8 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and brush with the remaining honey butter. It will absorb almost immediately into the hot biscuits. Serve warm with chocolate gravy or jam {or heck how about more honey butter!}.

For the Chocolate Gravy:

  • Mix dry ingredients together in a large saucepan then whisk in milk.
  • Heat over medium high until it boils, whisking constantly.
  • Turn heat to medium and add butter. Stir until it melts and gravy has thickened.
  • Remove from heat and serve warm on top of fresh from the oven biscuits.
  • Also delicious on pound cake, fruit, and ice cream!
