These Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits are perfectly fluffy and packed with sharp cheddar flavor, they are ideal for any meal.


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick ( 1/2 cup) cold salted butter, shredded like cheese, plus room temperature butter for greasing the pan
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 cup + 3 tablespoons cold Buttermilk
  • 1 large egg

Honey Butter Topping

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
  • Sea salt


  • Preheat Oven: Set your oven to 425°F (220°C) and rub a 10-inch cast iron skillet with butter.
  • Make the dough: Mix flour, baking powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt in a bowl. With your hands, blend in shredded butter and cheddar cheese. Then, add honey and buttermilk and stir until combined.
  • Shape Biscuits: Place the dough on a floured surface. Shape it into a 1-inch-thick rectangle, fold it like a letter, and turn it. Flatten again, repeat the fold, turn once more, and then shape it into a 10 x 7 inch rectangle about 1 inch thick.
  • Cut the dough into 3-inch circles with a biscuit cutter, re-roll leftovers, and cut again. Place biscuits in the skillet, mix an egg with 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl, then brush this egg wash on the biscuits.
  • Bake until golden, 15-18 minutes.
  • Make honey butter: melt 2 tablespoons butter with honey and garlic powder in a small saucepan on low heat. Remove from heat and stir in parsley.
  • Finish and Serve: Once the biscuits are done, immediately brush them with the garlic butter mixture. Sprinkle with flaky salt.
  • Enjoy!
