Blue Cheese-Honey Biscuits with Honey Butter

So apparently blue cheese & honey is like this amazing combination, and we had no idea. So we decided to try it. Normally you get toasted bread and spread on blue cheese, then drizzle honey on top, but we decided to make blue-cheese honey biscuits with some honey butter for a breakfast item. It turned out really well! We're enjoying them right now, and hopefully soon you will too!
Blue Cheese-Honey Biscuits with Honey Butter
For the Biscuits:
2 ¼C AP Flour
2 ½t Baking Powder
1T Honey
¾t Baking Soda
1t Salt
6T Butter, Chilled & Cut into Cubes
1 ½C Blue Cheese, Crumbled
1C Buttermilk

For the Honey Butter:
1 Stick Butter, Softened
1T + 1t Honey
¼t Vanilla
Dash of Cinnamon

1. Preheat your oven to 450 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with Pam.
2. To make the biscuits, start off by blending the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cubed butter in a food processor until it is crumbly. Dump this mixture into a bowl and pour in the buttermilk, honey, and blue cheese. Mix until incorporated, but do not over-mix because it will make your biscuits tough. Scoop this dough with a spoon (or I used an ice cream scoop) onto the lined baking sheet. This recipe should make about 12 biscuits.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, rotating halfway through.
4. While the biscuits are baking, make the honey butter. Put the softened butter, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon in a bowl and beat with a hand mixer, so the butter becomes light and fluffy. Serve this on the side for those who want a sweeter biscuit.
5. Serve the biscuits immediately with the honey butter, so it gets nice & melted!
