Hey, could I get a big favor out here? Someone who doesn't mind doing some experimental cooking?

Take your favorite biscuit recipe. Now sub honey in for vinegar or lemon juice or what ever your acid source is. I'd try it at about 1.25-1.5 units of honey for every unit of vinegar. You might need to add a little extra flour for texture. Try it out and get back to me on how it turns out.

For those who don't have a favorite biscuit recipe, but are willing to make the attempt anyway, try this
1C Flour (sifted ideally)
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Mix these ingredients together.
Cut in 1/8th cup shortening

Then add
1 1/2 tsp honey
1/2 C milk.

Mix well, then fold it on the counter top, I'd do it at least 6 or 7 times. That'll give you a nice layered effect if anything else works right.

Shoot, no idea what temperature to cook them at, just a second. Try 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes

Right you need a glass or a biscuit cutter or what have you to cut them out.

This one might need more flour.
Might want to flour the counter top before kneading and folding the dough.

So, yeah, if you could try that and tell me how it worked out, I'd be much obliged.
