Deep Fried Biscuits with Honey Butter

Deep fried biscuits with honey butter are a rare treat for me, but I love them as much as ever. They’re very easy to make, and you can put just about anything on them. This time I went the sweet route, drizzling the biscuits with a homemade honey butter mix.

My mom would deep fry biscuits for breakfast for me when I was kid. It was a rare treat, and one I always looked forward to. I loved the crunchy exterior and soft pillowy (it’s unlikely that I used the term ‘pillowy’ as a kid, though) interior. I would eat them with just butter, and lots of it.
