Easy recipe for homemade tender, flaky buttermilk biscuits with tangy blue cheese folded in. Perfect topped with a dollop of honey.


3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
Extra buttermilk for brushing
Honey, for serving


1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

2) Cube cold butter and add it to the dry stuff. Use your fingers to work the butter into the flour until it’s in pea-sized pieces.

3) Pour in buttermilk and stir until the dough just comes together. Don’t overwork the dough.

4) Scoop dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface and press it into a large rectangle, about 8×16.

5) Sprinkle the dough with blue cheese and fold it in half. Then roll it back out into the large rectangle so there is a layer of cheese in the biscuits.

6) Cut the dough into 10-12 biscuits.

7) Transfer biscuits to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with buttermilk.

8) Bake biscuits at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes until they are golden brown and cooked through.

9) Let cool for a few minutes before serving. Serve with honey!
