Honey’s Homemade Onion Garlic Biscuits

Breads & Desserts


21⁄4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 stick cold butter, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
2⁄3 cup buttermilk
Milk, butter


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, add all dry ingredients and mix well using fingers. Pinch together the flour mixture into the mayonnaise and the butter, until you have pea-like crumbs. Using fingers, add in garlic and onions. Add buttermilk and stir, forming a ball of dough. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface, kneading and folding several times, without folding the dough too tightly. Cut dough into biscuits, using a biscuit knife, glass or tin can. Place the biscuits an inch apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. In a small cup, add ½ tablespoon of milk to 1½ tablespoons of melted butter and brush on a small amount of the mixture. Allow the biscuits to set for 10 minutes. Then place in the oven, adjust the temperature to 425 degrees and bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Note: Green onions and garlic can be replaced with ingredients such as pecans, cooked bacon, cheddar cheese or cranberries.
