  • 2 nice tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 nice avocados, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Golden Biscuits:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, cold, cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe. BLTAs:
  • Split the still-warm biscuits and top with some bacon, a lettuce leaf, a slice of tomato sprinkled with salt, and a slice of avocado sprinkled with salt and pepper. Cover with the other half of the biscuit and enjoy.

Golden Biscuits:
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment.

  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and baking soda in a large bowl.

  • Toss the butter in the flour and cut it in with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. With a rubber spatula, gently fold the buttermilk into the dough.

  • Knead the dough a few times on a lightly floured work surface until it comes together. Pat the dough into an 8-by-10-by-3/4-inch rectangle. Cut out biscuits using a 2 3/4-inch biscuit cutter; cut straight down, don't twist. Cut the biscuits as close to each other as possible to lessen the scraps. Gather any scraps and knead just a few times to bring them together. Pat them back to an even 3/4-inch thickness, and cut out 3 or 4 more biscuits. (The reworked scrap biscuits might not rise as much as the other biscuits, but they will still taste good!)

  • Place the biscuits on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with the honey. Bake for 15 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
