Citrus Honey Biscuits

These citrus honey biscuits are filled with the sweet flavor of honey and the bright freshness of orange and meyer lemons. They’re a delicious addition to your breakfast plate.

There’s a part of me that thinks I’d get along juuuust fine in the south. Warm weather, flip flops year round, the ability to say “bless her heart” and then be justified in talking smack about someone without my character coming into question and…biscuits. How can you not love a place will all those things?

Scones scream, “may I please have a cup of tea.” Biscuits scream, “I’ll take 2 fried eggs, a side of bacon, hash-browns and the biggest mug of coffee you have”.

I’m a biscuit girl.

Honey Citrus Biscuits

Not really the pour some-gravy-over-top kind of biscuit and more so the eat-on-the-side-of-your-breakfast-plate kind.

While I may be a newly minted biscuit girl, the gravy thing freaks me out.
