Honey butter

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/3 cup honey plus 2 tablespoons


  • Baking spray
  • 2 cups White Lily self-rising flour
  • 1/4 cup shortening chilled

  • In a small mixing bowl, beat butter and honey until well-blended. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Heat oven to 500°F. Spray baking sheet with non-stick baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, add flour and shortening. Cut shortening with pastry knife until crumbs are the size of peas. Blend in enough milk with fork until dough leaves sides of bowl.
