Honey Butter Biscuits

We don’t serve 160 million biscuits every year because people like them. We serve that many because people are head-over-heels in love with them. These things are scratch-made in small batches all day long, and drizzled with honey butter the second they come out of the oven. They don’t just “sell like hotcakes.” They sell like our honey-butter biscuits, which is faster.
