This weekend I needed a nice light, sweet biscuits recipie, and this one is absolutely perfect. This sweet biscuit is just a tiny bit sweet and has many possibilities. You could make this a dessert by slicing them and adding whipped cream and strawberries, peanut butter, or even jam. I made a honey butter and I can’t believe I have not made this sooner. So good!

This sweet biscuit recipe is so easy I had all the ingredients already in my pantry. It’s super simple to mix up, but I highly suggest using a pastry blender. That was the only step in this recipe that took any time. You do need to cut in the cold butter very, very well and using a pastry blender makes it much easier.

How do you cut in butter without a pastry blender?

Other options to use to cut in butter would be using a food processor or even a blender. By pulse blending it seems to give the best results.

Are sweet biscuits the same as a scone?

Biscuits are more of a bread and are more moist than a scone. Scones have a higher proportion of fat to flour than biscuits and are usually consumed with a hot beverage.

I love easy and fast recipies and these sweet biscuits fit the bill! They were easier to make than I thought and I’ll be whipping them up for the family more often for sure. They were a nice lightly sweet breakfast biscuit that you can top with almost anything. The honey butter was something new for me and It’s truly the best of both worlds, it’s that good!

Enjoy this sweet morning treat!
